Event #14: Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better kicked off on June 4th and finished up on June 6th after 1,036 players took to the tables to build a prizepool of $1,398,600. The final day found 26 returning to fight it out for the first place prize of $283,275 and a gold bracelet. When the smoke cleared, Nick Kost had all the chips!

The Final Results:

1Nick Kost$283,275
2Kal Raichura$175,300
3Jim Bucci$109,678
4Calen McNeil$79,608
5Alex Luneau$58,769
6Steve Chanthabouasy$44,055
7Greg Raymer$33,510
8Adam Coats$25,832
9Konstantin Puchkov$20,181

The final table had defending champion Calen "Big Wheel" McNeil and former Main Event champion Greg Raymer but the day started with bracelet winners Chris Tryba, Dan Heimiller, and Frankie O'Dell -- and one of our favorites Maria Ho! Navigating through the field of notables that showed up for Day 3 was no easy task but Kost was up for it!

Kost started this event with only $15,815 in live cashes. His Omaha Eight-or-Better skills were responsible for two of his cashes: A 9th place finish in a different Omaha Eight-Or-Better tournament and a 4th place finish in a seven-game tournament, both at the 2011 LAPC.

The end of the tournament came down with a resounding finish when Nick Kost raised on the button and Kal Raichura answered with a raise. Kost called. The flop brought the {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Raichura bet, Kost raised, Raichura raised, and Kost raised. Raichura called.

When the {8-Clubs} hit the turn, Raichura bet. Kost called. Before the {3-Diamonds} hit the river, Raichura put the last of his chips in.

Kost called without hesitating and stood up to slap the {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} onto the table showing a queen-high flush.

"Nice hand," Raichura said as he barely exposed {k-}{j-}{q-}{x-} before the dealer pulled his cards in.

Congratulations to everyone that played the tournament! Great job! And congratulations to Nick on his win!

Caitlyn Howe talked to Kost about the win.
