In 2013, Blake Bohn broke through with the largest score of his career by winning the Chicago Poker Classic Main Event and outlasting 392 entrants to earn $288,171 of the $1.2 Million prize pool.
Born in Savage, Minnesota, Bohn began his professional poker playing career in 2004 where he focused primarily on High-Limit Hold’em cash games while sprinkling in an occasional tournament. After some modest tournament success, Bohn made a commitment in 2010 to put more time and effort into No-Limit Hold’em tournaments which included playing, traveling and studying more.
Since then, Bohn has been crushing on the felt and has amassed six titles and $667,685 in tournament earnings over the last three years. In the summer of 2011, Bohn ran deep in the World Series of Poker $10K Main Event – placing 126 of 6,865 entrants for $54,851.
Blake Bohn is widely considered as one of the top professional poker players in the Midwest and the Mid-States Poker Tour is proud to have this rising star as a member of Team MSPT.
