Biography

David "Bakes" Baker is an American poker player. He is a three-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner with over $3.3 million in lifetime earnings (November 2021).

Poker Achievements

Baker's first recorded cash came in 2008, with Baker cashing in the WSOP Main Event later that year. Two years later, Baker would get his hands on a WSOP bracelet, defeating an incredibly stacked final table in Event #19: $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship that included Daniel Negreanu, George Danzer, Erik Seidel and John Monnette.

Two years later, he would win another mixed game bracelet in the prestigious Event #32: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Coincidentally, Monnette was also at this final table, finishing second as Baker took home $451,779.

Baker would continue to cash almost exclusively at the WSOP, with five top-ten finishes in 2013 alone. In 2018, he finished second in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E., before two top-five finishes in 2019.

In 2021, Baker finally got his hands on a third WSOP bracelet in Event #34: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw.

“It feels amazing. I wanted it real bad," Baker said in a post-win interview with PokerNews. “I don’t know what I was doing heads-up those last few times.”
