Baker's Queens Drown on the River


From what we could piece together, Isaac Baron had raised preflop and gotten two callers. Baron then continuation-bet the {6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop, David "ODB" Baker raised from the cutoff, Jesse Sylvia called from the button, and Baron got out of the way.

Both Baker and Sylvia checked the {5-Spades} turn as well as the {4-Hearts} river, prompting the former to roll over {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. Sylvia then revealed {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a rivered straight and the win.
