Event 24: 1st Place - O'Brien

$200 + $30 + $100 Black Chip Bounty No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry) 

William O'Brien - (Philadelphia, PA)

Dr. William J. O'Brien III was a force at the final table.  He captured 12 bounties during the entire tournament but said that the last bounty won was the best.
O'Brien is a Doctor who has patients to see tomorrow morning so it's a good thing he wrapped things up, dishing out some bad medicine, when he did.

His wife Elizabeth rooted from the rail for the entire final table.  He credits her morning relaxation routine for his fresh start this morning (even though he had to Re-enter).

The Borgata trophy will go on the mantle but it will take one year for William to return and defend his title as his schedule only allows him to play 1 big tournament a year.

Big hand of the tournament is in the recap but after crippling Anthony Wing (Dover, DE) heads-up, the final hand of the tournament was O'Brien's KK vs. Wing's 22.

Board: 5-J-J-Q-8

Congratulations again to our big winner William O'Brien who turns $230 into $13,038.

Elizabeth & William
