David ODB Baker Eliminated in 56th Place ($128,384); Bobby Law Eliminated in 57th Place ($128,384)

David "ODB" Baker

We just saw another dramatic all-in situation over at one of the tables in the Gold section, this one involving three players, with two at risk.

The hand began with Bobby Law shoving his short stack all in for 650,000 from under the gun. It folded to David "ODB" Baker in the cutoff who reraised all in himself for about 950,000. After the button folded, Marc Ladouceur called Baker's reraise from the small blind, the big blind folded, and the three players showed their hands.

Ladouceur: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Law: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Baker: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Three big hands, with Ladouceur's ahead with five cards to come. The flop came {5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, providing Law and Baker with a gutshot to a wheel. The turn was the {7-Spades}, and Ladouceur was still in front. The dealer then burned and turned over the river — the {4-Hearts} — and Ladouceur's kings had held.

Both Law and Baker were eliminated, and since Baker had the bigger stack before the hand he'll finish 56th while Law finishes 57th, though both earn the same $128,384 payday.
