Baker Agonizes Over His Decision

will_shill • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

Chad Power raised to 120,000 and David "ODB" Baker called. Ali Abduljabbar then raised to 530,000. Power folded and Baker made the call.

The flop came {5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and Abduljabbar instantly moved all in for 735,000. Baker leaned back in his chair and put his hands behind his head. He asked for a count, and then separated the amount he needed to call with to see what he would be left with.

As the $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo players wandered back to their seats, both Frank Kassela and Matt Glantz shouted over their encouragement, oblivious to the big decision that Baker faced; elbows on the table, fingers in his ears.

"Just one more minute, guys," he said, and a short while later the clock was called on him. The seconds ticked down and eventually his hand was declared dead.
