If it won't run without choke, then it's not getting enough fuel. You probably either have a clogged jet in the carb, or you have an air leak somewhere that's allowing air to dilute the air/fuel mixture.
Unless a gasket suddenly died, fell apart, and left a gaping hole, a sudden failure like that is probably a clogged jet.
I'd clean out the bowl on the carb and hose the jets out really good with carb cleaner. If you have it, hit the jets up with some compressed air, too. While you're in there, make sure the float isn't sticking and the fuel flow is good.
take the spark plug out and see if the engine will turn over then, gas will probably come out of the cylinder cause you flooded it when you turned it over after you get the gas out of the cylinder, put the cleaned spark plug back in and it should start
