Blake Bohn Crowned MSPT Grand Falls Main Event Champion

Blake Bohn Crowned MSPT Grand Falls Main Event ChampionAfter twice finishing runner-up in previous Mid-States Poker Tour events, three times has proven a charm for poker pro Blake Bohn who has finally bagged the elusive title in South Dakota. On his way to victory, the Minnesota native managed to overcome a field of 201 players at the MSPT Grand Falls to collect the $54,607 first place prize, and boost his live earnings to $1,455,293. Following his impressive win, Bohn took to twitter and wrote:
“Boom we did it! 1st @msptpoker title! Good times.. I really appreciate all the kind words, it really means a lot to me. Thanks for making the win extra special.”
The $1,100 buy-in MSPT Grand Falls Main Event created a prize pool of $201,000, and after two Day 1’s just 36 players made it through to a last day of action. Eventually Ryan Skluzak was then eliminated in 11th place for $2,534 after which the televised final table of ten was set.
As the final table got underway, Blake Bohn held around a third of the chips in play and he soon added further to his stack by eliminating Frank Martin in 10th ($2,534), followed by Max Bergquist in 9th ($3,899), and Phil Mader in 7th ($7,798).
Continuing his assault, Blake Bohn (A-K) then sent Herb Laney (Q-Q) to the rail in 6th ($9,748), Jason Robertson in 4th ($15,012), and after Bohn (K-Q) bounced Steve Belland (Q-J) from the competition in 3rd ($18,522), the heads up phase got underway between Bohn and Jeff Bryan for the title.
Blake Bohn subsequently managed to rocket off to a 9 to 1 chip lead, but Bryan was able to almost close the gap before the defining hand was played with Bohn’s 5-4 up against the A-A of his opponent. However, Bryan’s decision to slow play his pocket rockets proved a costly one and after both players went all-in on a 4-5-Q-Q-5 board Jeff Bryan picked-up $32,170 for his hard-fought efforts, while Blake Bohn was crowned the MSPT Grand Falls Main Event champion.
Final Table Results:
1 Blake Bohn    $54,607
2 Jeff Bryan    $32,170
3 Steve Belland    $18,522
4 Jason Robertson $15,012
