Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

David Baker Eliminated in 13th Place ($20,521)

Shamus • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
David Baker - 13th place

David "OBD" Baker came into play with a short stack and put it to the test several times during these first two levels. Recently, following a button raise by Andrew Teng, Baker pushed his stack of about 220,000 in the middle from the small blind and got a call from Teng. Baker had {A-Clubs}{9-Spades} and hopes of doubling versus Teng's {A-Hearts}{6-Spades}, but the board came {3-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Spades}{J-Clubs} and the pair chopped the pot.

Just a couple of orbits later, Baker was all in again from under the gun for his last 180,000 and got a caller once more in Teng in the big blind. This time Baker held {Q-}{10-} and had run into Teng's {A-}{K-}. The board brought no help to Baker's hand, and he's out in 13th place.

Teng is now up to 930,000.
