Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Paul Kobel Has Been Eliminated

Paul Kobel 1996 $1,500 WSOP Champion

In 2006 when computers didn't exist, dinosaurs still roamed the earth and people only played poker in places called card rooms and saloons Paul Kobel won a World Series of Poker (WSOP) gold bracelet. He is a proud and very charming man and the tournament will be poorer from his absence.

He started the day with a mountain to climb with only 12,600 chips, and Florian Langmann has just made sure he will not reach the summit.

We joined the action on a flop of {J-Clubs} {7-Spades} {7-Diamonds} and Kobel check-called a jam by Langmann. Langmann turned over {K-Hearts} {10-Hearts} and Kobel had the better hand with {Q-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}. The turn card {K-Spades} reversed the situation and the river {8-Spades} confirmed the exit of Kobel.
