Bohn – who is a member of MSPT Team Pro – bagged his second title after overcoming a final table that contained two other former champions: Peixin Liu taking the Shakopee title in 2014, and David Gonia doing likewise in Columbus in 2013.

It was Bohn’s fifth MSPT final table. I have already mentioned his two victories, but he also finished runner-up to Ben Marsh in an event held in Welch 2011, runner-up to Mark Sandness in an event held in Columbus 2014, and third behind the impressive duo of Justin Liberto and Greg Himmelbrand in Maryland Live! 2015.

The 410 entrants created a total prize pool of $410,000 and 45-people picked up a minimum of $1,981. That included former MSPT title winner, and 2015 MSPT POY interest Angelina Rich (10th) and World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) gold ring winner Rex Clinkscales.

Bohn – who finished 23rd in the recent WSOP Main Event for $262,574 – has now earned over $2.3m in live tournaments, and holds the MSPT POY lead over Mark Hodge by 410 points.
