I ran into Barny Boatman sitting on a beach-front bench enjoying the view this lunchtime. Well, he was enjoying it as much as his back would allow him to. He injured it a few days ago after a gym session and it flared up even worse after his travels to Italy.
So far it seemingly hasn't hampered his play as much as he feared. We caught up with hand he was involved in that had made it to the river with 5,150 in the middle. The board read and Mario Puccini checked to face a 3,625 bet from the Brit.
After a good deal of thought the German released his hand and was told, "I guess you couldn't beat a set then?"
