Baker Binks the Double Up Against Saechao

Posted 2012-05-29 GMT-6 by

Patricia Baker limped in from the button, and James Routos called in the small blind. Chiab Saechao was sitting in the big blind, and he made it 60,000 on top to go. Baker came along for the ride, but Routos folded.

The dealer showed a flop of {9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, and Saechao thought for just a few moments before announcing all in. Baker snap called, and showed {j-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for flopped top pair. Saechao caught no part of the flop, showing just {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}, and he would need some help. The turn came the {k-Clubs}, and Saechao was still looking for an ace. The {7-Hearts} hit the river, and Baker collected the double up.
