Joey Boczek, also known as “Birdman”, arrived at this final table as the chip leader, however he found himself in a few tough spots and saw his stack get crippled after a few orbits.
On a recent hand, he got it in with top set on the flop versus Bob T and his made flush, and couldn’t improve on the running cards.
He lost over 200K on the hand and was left with only 24K behind. He doubled it up on the next hand versus Alain Neveu, however Andy D’Alessandro cleaned him out shortly after.
His 6th place finish might have earned him 1st place on the weekly leaderboard for the World Cup of Cards, however we will know for sure once both events tonight have concluded.
6th place: Joey Boczek – $520.00
