Baker Survives


David Baker got the rest of his short stack into the pot on fifth street against Jon Turner.

Baker's hand showed {10-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {8-Spades} {6-Diamonds} {6-Hearts}, but his two pair were in trouble.

Turner already had queens up with his {Q-Clubs} {Q-Spades} {5-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} {4-Spades}. He went ahead and pulled the {A-Hearts} and {A-Diamonds} on the last two streets to improve to aces up. Baker's sixth street {10-Clubs} improved him to tens up, but he still needed to fill up to stay alive.

"Come on, three across," Baker pleaded as he squeezed. It was three across, and the {8-Clubs} was a timely river card. That's eights full, and it means Baker can stick around for now. He's got about 9,500 chips.
