WSOP 1979 Final Hand

Hal Fowler 7-Spades 6-Diamonds versus Bobby Hoff A-Hearts A-Clubs

The result of the battle between Hal Fowler and Bobby Hoff at the WSOP 1979 final table proved that even a most hopeless hand can win against a pair of Aces, as well as how an amateur can handle a poker game against a professional and actually win the World Poker Champion title.

The flop came {J-Spades} {3-Clubs} {5-Hearts}. Hoff retained his advantage and bet $40.000 more into the pot. Fowler called with his inside straight draw.

The turn brought the {4-Clubs}, doing nothing for Hoff, and a nut gutshot straight to Fowler. Hoff moved all-in. Fowler called.

The {10-Diamonds} hit on the river and the title and the prize money went to Fowler.
