Hand #26: Spencer Baker opened all in for 360,000 from the button and Matthew Smith called from the big blind. The players then turned over their hands with Baker at risk.

Matthew Smith: {j-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Spencer Baker: {q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}

The flop came down {k-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} and Baker would now need to hit a queen to stay alive. The {a-Clubs} on the turn and {5-Clubs} on the river did not help him as he was eliminated to the hands of Smith.
