Event #17: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E.

Kost Gets The Scoop

• Level 20
Nicholas "MVP" Kost On Day 2


We caught the action on seventh street as Nicholas Kost and Ken Lennaard slugged it out.

Kost: (X)(X) - {6-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Lennaard: (X)(X) - {Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{J-Spades}

After squeezing his seventh street card, Kost fired a bet of 16,000 into the middle and Lennaard looked him up. Kost said "straight" as he tabled his down cards: {A-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} for a nine high straight. Lennaard was unable to produce a qualifying low hand and Kost, adorned in a snazzy Derrick Rose # 1 Bulls jersey, scooped the pot.

One of Kost's fans on the rail yelled out "You don't mess with Jalen Rose!" and Kost began laughing as he corrected his friend while stacking his newly earned chips.
