Barny Boatman, Hendon Mobster and one of two Boatmans here at the WSOP, has his sights set on a first bracelet. Despite making a record three back-to-back final tables in 2002 including one second place finish, that little piece of gold hardware has so far eluded him.

During a break in the $3,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo World Championship, Barny took some time away from railing his brother Ross in the $5k No-Limit Hold'em event to share his thoughts.

Having come all the way here from England you must be feeling the effects of the travel. How have things being going for you and how has the fatigue affected your play?

Yeah, you're right about the jet-lag. It takes about a week to get over it. I came straight in, and the day after I arrived, I played the $5,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em, and I was there until around midnight.

Since then I haven't been going deep in any of the tournaments I've played. I had a good shot in the Shootout. Right now I'm playing in the Stud Hi-Lo which is a game I really love, but I've drawn an unbelievable table, you should come take a look at it.

Joe Beevers are all players to keep an eye on. Hopefully we'll see Ross at the final table of the $5k No-Limit event as well as watch Barny make it deep in a few more tournaments before the summer is out.
