Baker Pushes, Dawkins Calls


David Baker raised to 48,000 under the gun and was reraised by Dalton Dawkins to 148,000. When action folded back to Baker, he moved all in.

Baker had Dawkins, who had 255,000 behind, covered. Dawkins thought for awhile before announcing, "Call."

Baker turned over {Ah]{K-Diamonds} and was racing against Dawkin's {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}. The spectators around the rail leaned is as the flop came down {5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}. Dawkins held on to the lead, but it was short lived as the {A-Clubs} hit the turn.

Dawkins seemed to know that he was toast, as he began to rise even before the {5-Diamonds} hit the river. Dawkins was eliminated in 19th place.
