Bobby Baldwin reacts to catching a card on the river to survive

Hand #24: Brian Rast had the button and Sam Trickett raised from early position to one million. Everyone folded and he won the pot.

Hand #25: Phil Hellmuth had the button. From the cutoff seat, Guy Laliberté raised and everyone folded.

Hand #26: Antonio Esfandiari had the button in Seat 4. Action folded to him and he raised to 1.1 million. All folded and Esfandiari won the blinds and antes.

Hand #27: Bobby Baldwin had the button.

Guy Laliberté raised to one million from under the gun and Baldwin called. Sam Trickett called from the small blind and the flop came down {8-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. On the flop, action checked to Baldwin and he moved all in for 3.4 million. Trickett folded and Laliberté called.

Laliberté: {5-Spades}{4-Spades}
Baldwin: {K-Spades}{9-Spades}

Laliberté was ahead when the money went in and Baldwin needed help. The turn was the {5-Clubs} and gave Laliberté two pair, leaving Baldwin drawing to a straight to stay alive.

The river completed the board with the {7-Diamonds} and Baldwin smacked the card he needed to double up. The crowd errupted in awe and Laliberté sent over the chips. Baldwin took his visor off with his left hand and raised it to the crowd as they applauded, certainly happy with fifth street on that one.
