Bohn Takes This Round

mnuwwarah • Level 30: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante

Bill Kohler had the betting lead with {k-Spades}{a-Spades} but relinquished it with Ernest Bohn picking up fours on board on fifth as both players checked. Both checked sixth and seventh as well.

Kohler: {q-}{k-}{j-}/{k-Spades}{a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Bohn: {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Spades}/{q-Spades}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{8-Spades}

Bohn thought he lost then realized he had eights up.

Kohler Soars into Chip Lead

Jan_Kores • Level 30: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante

With one small and two big bet lying in front of each player, Bill Kohler and Ernest Bohn ended up on seventh street. Bohn, like many times before, checked in the dark.

"I doubt I will check, but let me check my cards to see if I check," Kohler said. His doubts proved right as he fired one more bet. Bohn called.

Bill Kohler: {X-}{X-} / {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} / {X-}
Ernest Bohn: {X-}{X-} / {Q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} / {X-}

The showdown was little confusing for both players. Kohler thought he had six-low and a pair of sixes, but figured out that his {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs} was good for sixes up and no low.

Bohn had {A-}{8-}{9-} and thought he had a low, but he didn't make it either. His pair of aces was trailing for the high, leaving Kohler scooping the full pot.

Kohler Closes the Gap

mnuwwarah • Level 30: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante

Bill Kohler picked up a pile of spades on his board and fired every street against Ernest Bohn.

Kohler: {x-}{x-}/{10-Spades}{8-Spades}{q-Spades}{6-Spades}/{x-}
Bohn: {x-}{x-}/{6-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}/{x-}

Bohn finally mucked to the last bet.

"I think I have all the spades," Kohler said, showing {q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Spades}. "Do I have a straight flush? I have a straight flush."

Kohler's Unorthodox Strategy Fails

Jan_Kores • Level 30: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante

Bill Kohler had {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts} out and came up with an idea to bet without looking at his hole cards. He fired on fifth, too. Then he paired his five on sixth street, and fired again, still without knowing what he held in the hole. Ernest Bohn kept calling.

Bill Kohler: {X-}{X-} / {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades} / {X-}
Ernest Bohn: {X-}{X-} / {7-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades} / {X-}

Seventh street was checked and Bohn rolled over {4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for a pair of sevens. Kohler started exploring his hole cards. He turned over the {4-Spades}, saying, "that ain't bad". But then he opened the {9-Spades}. "That is bad." Finally, he rolled out the {K-Spades}. "That's even worse!" he finished his speech, knowing that meant a scoop.

Bohn re-established his big chip lead from earlier.

Bohn Back in Command

mnuwwarah • Level 30: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante

Bill Kohler bet fourth street with {2-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, and Ernest Bohn defended with {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. He picked up another diamond and took the lead, firing fifth and sixth.

Kohler: {x-}{x-}/{2-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Bohn: {x-}{x-}/{j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

Bohn checked dark on seventh for a showdown, and his {8-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for eights up was a winner.

Kohler Vaults into a Slight Lead

Jan_Kores • Level 30: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante

What looked to be one of many small pots twisted into a showdown worth two big bets apiece.

Ernest Bohn bet out on sixth and seventh streets, and Bill Kohler called on both occasions.

Ernest Bohn: {X-}{X-} / {K-}{10-}{6-}{J-} / {X-}
Bill Kohler: {X-}{X-} / {7-}{4-}{J-}{2-} / {X-}

"Two pair," Kohler announced, revealing his {J-}{3-}{7-} hole cards to scoop the pot. That win put Kohler slightly ahead of Bohn.

"You Must Have a Hell of a Hand"

mnuwwarah • Level 29: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Bill Kohler completed for the bring-in with {6-Hearts}, and Ernest Bohn called with {j-Spades}. Bohn came out betting on fourth but got raised, and he called bets on fifth and sixth.

Kohler: {x-}{x-}/{6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}/{x-}
Bohn: {x-}{x-}/{j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{k-Clubs}/{x-}

Kohler bet on the river as well.

"You must have a hell of a hand," Bohn said, mucking.

"I'll show you, just because I like you."

Kohler revealed {a-}{a-}{7-} for aces and a low.

Bohn Fed With Clubs

Jan_Kores • Level 29: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Ernest Bohn had the automatic bring-in with the {2-Clubs} and Bill Kohler raised with the {10-Spades} out. Kohler contiuned on fourth street, but Bohn's board kept improving to a possibly strong two-way hand. Kohler check-called on fifth but eventually gave up on sixth, looking at Bohn's four-to-a-flush and all-low board. Kohler flashed a ten, confirming he'd started with a pair.

Bill Kohler: {X-}{X-} / {10-Spades}{4-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} (folded on sixth)
Ernest Bohn: {X-}{X-} / {2-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
