Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Bruce Baker Withstands the Heat Despite A Major Sweat

• Nivel 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

After a short stacked player moved all-in for his last 18,000, Bruce Baker made the call with {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}. He was in great shape against the {A-Spades}{4-Spades} held by his opponent Baker called for no aces to hit the flop.

Flop: {K-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}

Baker got his wish with an ace-free flop, but his opponent had picked up the nut flush draw and a gutshot draw to the wheel straight. With an additional 12 outs to dodge, Baker was now a statistical underdog and he had a serious sweat on his hands while he waited for the dealer to drop the next cards.

Turn: {J-Diamonds}
River: {8-Diamonds}

Despite becoming the favorite on the flop with fifteen outs and two chances to hit them, the all-in player bricked out and hit the rail in 47th place. Baker built his stack to around 515,000 with the win to put himself squarely in contention as Day 2 comes to its conclusion.
