Eric Buchman has proved that his November Nine appearance in last year's Main Event wasn't a fluke by winning a bracelet at this year's WSOP.
His $203,607 payday for winning the $2,000 Limit Hold'em event may be small compared to the $2.5m he earned in the 2009 Main Event but it will certainly earn him the respect of the wider poker community.Buchman went into the final table with the chip lead and kept the pressure on throughout the last day hitting hand after hand and causing a string of eliminations. So dominant was Buchman on the final table that five of the last six players had Buchman to thank for their demise.The New York native sealed the win after his 10-7 overcame fellow American Brent Courson AK. Courson pocketed $125,737 for his efforts.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1 Eric Buchman $203,6072 Brent Courson $125,7373 Steven Hustoft $90,9284 Flavio Ferrari $66,4465 Hansu Chu $49,0686 William Jensen $36,6197 Matt Grapenthien $27,6098 Gary Bogdanski $21,0259 Matthew Matros $16,174
