Blake Bohn made history this week when he became the fourth player to win multiple Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) titles, staking his second claim to the trophy and taking home $102,299 against 410 entries.
Earlier this month, Bohn won 23rd-place at the World Series of Poker and the Minnesota-native rode that momentum to Tama, Iowa for the MSPT at Meskwaki Casino.
On the second day of the tour, notable players Tom Hammers, Mark Sandness, and Angela Rich, the first woman to ever win a MSPT title when she took home the top prize at last month’s MSPT Venetian, missed the final table. Rich came in 11th place and won $5,151.
Despite these players falling early, the final table included big names like Rob WazWaz, the first to lose, Dave Gonia, and Peixin Liu, who won the MSPT at Canterbury Park.
In the final three, Bohn got the high pair (jacks) on the flop to eliminate Gates, just one hand after Gates called and eliminated Liu with a A♢ 2♢ 3♢ 4♢ 5♢ straight flush. Bohn won the tournament with a Q♢ and 9♧, getting a queen on the flop to successfully conquer Thurlow’s J♤ and 9♤.
After Bohn rose to the top of the table, eliminating both Justin Thurlow and Greg Gates, he became the all-time most winning MSPT player with $275,277 in tour earnings. The Meskwaki win marked Bohn’s third top-five tour win and 10th total result.
The Mid-States Poker Tour will move to Mahnomen, Minn. next, bringing Bohn and other top players from the Midwest to the Shooting Star Casino.
