Kou Vang - Fifth Place

Kou Vang made this third straight Mid-States Poker Tour final table, but for the third straight time, he walked away without the title.

Dan Colpoys opened for 125,000 in the cutoff, and Kris Wagner three-bet to 310,000 on the button. Kou Vang woke up with an all-in four-bet to 660,000 from the small blind, and both Colpoys and Wagner called.

The two active players checked down the {4-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{2-Spades}{7-Hearts}{7-Spades} board.

"Two jacks," Colpoys said, showing {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. Wagner mucked his cards, and Vang raised up the {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} and tossed them into the middle face up.
