Baker Doubles Up Through Routos

Posted 2012-05-29 GMT-6 by

At this point, I'm pretty sure that James Routos and Chiab Saechao don't have a chance to win this tournament. Routos came in for a raise to 55,000 on the button, and Patricia Baker came along in the big blind. The flop came down {8-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}, and Baker thought for about 15 seconds before announcing a bet of 238,000, which was also all of her chips. Routos wasted little time in calling, and Baker knew that she had been caught.

Baker: {j-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Routos: {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}

Both players caught a pair on the flop, but Routos was well out in front. The turn brought paint, but it was the {q-Diamonds}, and Baker would need a jack or a two to win the pot. The river brought paint again, but this time, it was the {j-Spades} that Baker was looking for. Baker doubled up yet again, and is sitting on over 600,000.
