Twenty-six began the day and one remains: Nick Kost has taken down Event #14: $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi-Low here at the 2014 World Series of Poker. He'll claim $283,275 in prize money, as well as a priceless WSOP gold bracelet.
It took a smidge over 10 levels, but on the very first hand of Level 11, Kost busted runner-up Kal Raichura in a three-bet pot by rivering a flush in a pot where neither qualified for a low.
Kost also had to overcome a stiff challenge from defending champion Calen "Big Wheel" McNeil, whose title defense was about as worthy as they come before being halted in fourth place. Former Main Event champion Greg Raymer also put together a final table run, but he busted in seventh. Bracelet winners Chris Tryba and Frankie O'Dell also made Day 3 appearances before falling relatively early.
Kost came in with a mere $15,815 in live cashes, but his Omaha Eight-or-Better prowess had already contributed to two of his cashes: a ninth-place finish in different Omaha Eight-Or-Better tournament and a fourth-place finish in a seven-game tournament, both at the 2011 LAPC.
