Baker's Two Dozen

BrettC
Mandy Baker
Mandy Baker

Mandy Baker only had 4,500 at each of the first two breaks, but her stack has grown exponentially in the past two hours. We recently saw Baker putting in a preflop raise to 450 from early position and two players called to see a flop of {Q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Baker led out for 750 and only the cutoff called. The two players then checked the {6-Clubs} turn and {8-Clubs} river, and Baker tabled {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a pair of tens. Her opponent mucked, and Baker is up to around 24,000 chips.

No Worries, Says Coren

Shamus

A player raised from middle position, then it folded around to the small blind who shoved her short stack in the middle. Victoria Coren was in the big blind, and after checking her cards and studying her chips for a moment, declared she was reraising all in over the top, forcing a fold from the original raiser.

Coren tabled {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and her opponent {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. Immediately the all-in player began expressing doubts about what was to come, but the {K-Clubs}{5-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs}{6-Hearts} board meant she had survived.

"You worry too much," Coren said with a grin.

Gilmartin Gone

Shamus
Lynn Gilmartin
Lynn Gilmartin

PokerNews' own Lynn Gilmartin — another of those participating in the Onnit Labs' Last Sticker Standing challenge — was down to about 2,300 when she committed her stack with {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} against an opponent's {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} to give Gilmartin's opponent a set, though she had a diamond flush draw. But the turn was the {2-Clubs} and river the {5-Spades}, and Gilmartin has been eliminated.

Silver lining... she's now free to do more interviews!

Anderson Adds Ammunition

Danielle Anderson
Danielle Anderson

Danielle Anderson, who will be featured in the highly anticipated BOOM! documentary later this year (fingers crossed), just added some chips to her stack without seeing a showdown.

Action folded around to the player in the small blind, who called for 100 more, and Anderson raised to 600 from the big blind. The small blind called and the board rolled out {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. The small blind check-called Anderson's 600-chip bet, and the {9-Clubs} fell on the turn. The small blind checked again, but this time Anderson moved all in for 3,850. After some deliberation, the Anderson's opponent let her hand go, and she increased her stack to 5,900.

River Sinks Leigh

Shamus
Jennifer Leigh
Jennifer Leigh

Jennifer "Jennicide" Leigh has been eliminated.

All in with {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} versus her opponent's {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}, Leigh was ahead until the {J-Clubs} fell on the river, sending her out.

There just under 400 players remaining.
