Bohlman earns first WSOP bracelet and 60th cash

Scott Bohlman, of Homer Glen, IL, has taken down the win in Event #40 of the 2018 World Series of Poker, $2,500 Mixed Big Bet. Bohlman, 41, a lifelong resident of Chicago's southwest suburbs and an investor when not playing poker, arrived at Thursday's final table with a commanding lead and closed out his first career WSOP victory in short order. Bohlman's cruise to victory suffered only one hiccup, that during three-handed play when his final two opponents pulled close, only to see Bohlman quickly reestablish control.

Bohlman's $122,138 winner's payday was the largest of his WSOP career, and occurred in his 60th lifetime cash at the WSOP. The six-figure payday exceeds a $108,000 score he notched in the 2009 WSOP Main Event and swelled his lifetime earnings to $859,552.

Bohlman's bracelet win was completed with the ouster of two-time bracelet winner Ryan Hughes. Hughes, 37, of Phoenix, AZ, collected $75,477 while seeing his own lifetime WSOP earnings swell to just under one million dollars.

Third place in Event #40 was claimed by Atlanta, GA's Daniel Weinman. The 30-year-old Weinman, a previous WSOP Circuit ring winner, earned $49,541 for the effort.
