Big Baldwin


Joe Baldwin opened to 55,000 from under the gun and Jarred Solomon re-raised to 142,000 on the button. The blinds released and the action was back on Baldwin.

Baldwin took his sunglasses off and went deep into the tank. Finally, after over a minute, he slipped his shades back on and made the call.

The dealer wrapped the table before flopping {3-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{q-Spades} and Baldwin quickly checked. Solomon continued for 153,000 and Baldwin returned to the tank. Eventually he called.

Both players checked the {k-Spades} on the turn and the river brought the {7-Spades}.

Baldwin eyed his opponent, taking his time before leading for 215,000. Solomon thought for a moment before folding and Baldwin was pushed the pot.

Solomon slipped to 550,000 chips and Baldwin is now nearing 2,000,000.
