6.13.10 – Tex Barch bested an original field of 885 to take event 20, the $1 500 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha competition on Saturday night; it was his third WSOP final table since 2005 and his first WSOP winner’s bracelet.
On the final day of a hectic 3 day contest Barch was the closest rival to chip leader Nenad Medic but quickly built up his stack as the day’s play progressed, eventually taking the lead and amassing over 2 million in chips, which enabled him to dominate the action.
In some truly exciting poker he eliminated Nenad Medic, Trai Dang and Klinghammer Thibaut in three consecutive hands to claim the $294,314 first place prize, boosting his career earnings to over $3 million.
Barch started the heads up against Thibaut with a 7 to 1 chip advantage, quickly winning the game and leaving his opponent with the runner-up’s prize of $256,919.
Trai Dang’s third placing enabled him to take home $102,306.
