Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Baker Not Afraid, But Still Doubles Rosenblum


David Baker opened to 36,000 from late position, only to have Russell Rosenblum bump it to 110,000 from the button.

"Eight behind . . . maybe you're afraid" announced Rosenblum indicating to Baker that he had only 8,000 behind.

As Baker deliberated, Adam Levy announced, "I hope you don't get disconnected!"

"I probably have two live cards" added Baker before putting Rosenblum all in for his last 8,000.

Rosenblum: {K-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
Baker: {7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}

"Image gone early" laughed off Baker as the dealer spread the {9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{A-Spades} flop.

The turn of the {J-Diamonds}, and river of the {2-Clubs} changed little to see Rosenblum double through to 275,000 as Baker slipped to 717,000 in chips.
