Winnar! And That's the Guth!
In one of the most raucous final tables we have seen, John Guth has taken the bracelet, $363,216 and the remarkably easy-to-say title of world champion in Omaha Hi-Lo Split Eight-or-Better.
Guth checked a call from Robert Stevanovski to see the Q♥ 9♠ 8♣ flop. John checked, Robert bet $80,000, John raised and Stevanovski called for the rest of his chips.
Guth flipped up 9♥ 9♦ T♦ 3♥ for a flopped set of nines, while Robert needed a jack to make a gutshot. The board finished up 8♥ 5♠ to fill John's house and send Stevanovski home with $218,456 for second place.
Guth went insane, jumping and crying "Is this real? Can I touch it??" while fondling the pile of cash and championship bracelet.
"I'm gonna get a Rolex right now!" he yelled, surrounded by shouting friends and family. It's about time, John.
