Event #62: The $1,111 Little One for One Drop

Eric Baldwin Eliminated in 5th Place ($156,352)

[user272102] • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Eric Baldwin

Hand #124: Ted Driscoll opened to 355,000 and Eric Baldwin called from the big blind. The flop came {8-Spades}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Baldwin check-folded to a 380,000 bet from Driscoll.

Hand #125: It was folded to Baldwin in the small blind and he moved all in. Brandon Eisen looked at his cards and immediately called. Baldwin had {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and was in bad shape against Eisen and his {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}.

The flop of {10-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades} kept Eisen in the lead. The turn was the {K-Clubs}, meaning only one of the two remaining deuces would keep Baldwin in the tournament. The river was the {Q-Spades}, though, and Eisen's set of queens was enough to send Baldwin to the pay out desk to receive his $156,352 prize for finishing in fifth place.

Baldwin gave each of the remaining four players a hand shake while Eisen's rail chanted his name loudly. A small fist pump from Eisen let them know he heard them.
