WASSUP '08: Klaser KOs Kastle
June 27, 2021
Many believed Event #43, the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Low, was going to be Erik Seidel's ninth bracelet. However, Germany's Martin Klaser instead chose to believe in himself, eventually taking home the title, his first WSOP bracelet, and a first place prize worth $216,249.

Klaser entered the final table of Event #43 third in chips, behind chip leader Jon Maren and the highly experienced Erick Seidel. In the end it was Casey Kastle that gave him the most trouble, lasting all the way into heads-up play before finally submitting to Klaser and accepting the second place prize of $137,985. Jon Maren's chip lead was only able to earn him fifth place money ($56,019) and Seidel's experience only netted him fourth ($68,304) as both were knocked out by Kastle setting him up for heads-up play with Klaser.
