Kyle Bowker has just received his first gold poker bracelet. It is interesting to note that it was the first Bowkerís victory after 34 prize-winning tournaments. The professional poker player from the United States managed to win the $3,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha High-Low Split Event. This three-day tournament took place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Bowker was able to pocket $294,960. Despite the fact that it was the first victory of the current gold bracelet owner, it was not the biggest cash prize in his career. His total earnings for all tournaments reached 1.4 million dollars.
The final table of the $3,000 Buy-In Pot-Limit Omaha High-Low Split Event included a lot of excellent poker players. One of the most reputable players was Scott Clements, who could boast two WSOP titles. However, Clemens was able to take only the 8th place, collecting $24,409. The seventh position in the final standings was occupied by Daniel Lowe. He earned $32,510. Noah Bronstein finished the tournament in the sixth place, receiving $44,171. He was followed by Chris Ruby. His fifth place brought him 61,196 dollars. The fourth place was occupied by Richard Ashby from the United Kingdom. He managed to win $86,422. Jarred Graham enjoyed a third-place finish and $124,360. Kate Hoang became the runner up. He earned $182,281 as a consolation prize.
Pot-Limit Omaha High-Low Split seems to be an online poker variation. However, its live versions are not extremely popular, especially among WSOP players. Nevertheless, Kyle Bowker had enough skills to win the tournament with 473 participants and $1,291,290 as a prize pool.
