David "Bakes" Baker to battle for third bracelet

An extra day has been added to determine the winner of the Event #27: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship and both remaining contenders already know what it feels like to lift the elusive gold bracelet for the winner shot at the World Series of Poker.

Four-time WSOP bracelet winner John "World" Hennigan will have a comfortable lead over two-time champion David "Bakes" Baker, who took down this very event back in 2012. Both already have $256,297 locked up, but all eyes are set on the first-place payout of $414,692 and further engraving their name in the history books of poker.

After furious action in the last levels of the previous night and brief heads-up encounter thus far, Hennigan will return with 6,675,000 while Baker has 1,630,000 at his disposal. The duo will battle it out on the outer feature table of the Amazon room and the blinds in the Hold'em and Omaha rounds will be 60,000/120,000, while the Stud games will feature limits of 100,000-200,000 with an ante of 20,000 and a bring-in of 30,000.
