Basebaldy Needs Some Coffee

• Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

Eric "Basebaldy" Baldwin opened to 75 from the cutoff and the player in the small blind grabbed three black T100 chips and tossed them into the middle making it a total of 325 to go. It was folded back to Baldwin who made the call.

The flop came {7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Baldwin tapped the table, unseen by the remaining players and dealer, and then called the 625 bet from his opponent.

The turn was the {K-Clubs} and Baldwin again tapped the table first to act even though he was in position. The dealer seemed to notice it but since Baldwin's opponent checked he moved on.

The river was the {Q-Clubs} and the player in the small blind casually threw a T1,000 chip into the middle. Baldwin looked at him and said "I didn't act yet." The dealer explained he was not first to act and Baldwin let out a laugh. "I apologize," he said, sliding his cards into the muck.
