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

Kost's Kings Crushed By Lake's Aces

• Level 20


We caught the action as Nicholas Kost got it all-in against Scott Lake with the board reading {A-Spades}{6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}. Kost showed down the {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} for a turned set of kings and a great low draw to the six. Unfortunately for him, he would need the dealer to deliver that low draw, as Lake held the {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for a set of aces.

The river was a brick for Kost and his three kings were not good enough to keep him alive as he exits in 18th place. Lake has chipped up to 430,000 as we approach the final three hands of Day 2, with just 17 competitors remaining in this fight for a WSOP bracelet.
