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


David Baker (whom we've taken to calling "ODB" or Original David Baker thanks to him having another name doppelganger in the world of poker) was all in for about 200,000 preflop with {9-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}, and he was behind but drawing live when David Assouline called him down with {A-Spades} {J-Clubs}.

The dealer gave ODB some help on board; it ran {8-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} {Q-Spades} {8-Hearts} {4-Diamonds}. Baker paired up to double up, and he's back to 480,000 but could still use another couple doubles to get back to average.

Assouline slipped to 1.1 million.
