Event #40: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Bill Kohler Eliminated in 2nd Place ($107,063)

William Kohler

Ernest Bohn completed with the {A-Diamonds} and Bill Kohler called with the {K-Hearts}. Kohler called another bet on fourth, saying: "I think this might be it, Ernie."

Bohn fired one more bet on fifth, covering Kohler's 105,000 remaining chips. Kohler nearly called but then paused and counted his chips. Then he finally called.

Bill Kohler: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} / {K-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Ernest Bohn: {5-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} / {A-Hearts}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs}

Kohler received a meaningless {Q-Spades} on sixth but spiked a pair of tens on the river, turning up the {10-Hearts}. Bohn hit the {3-Spades} on sixth and was guaranteed to take at least a half of the pot with his low. He looked at his last card after Kohler had exposed his full hand, knowing which cards would be sealing the victory.

Bohn rolled over the {4-Hearts} for a straight and shouted "Yes!" in immediate joy.

Bill Kohler repeated his result from 2009, adding another runner-up finish from $1,500 Stud Hi-Lo to his name. This time, Kohler's performance was rewarded with a $107,063 prize.
