David Baker Wins Event no. 32 ($451,779)
John Monnette Eliminated in 2nd Place ($279,206)

David Baker

David Baker entered the final level of the tournament with a 2:1 chip lead over John Monnette, but Monnette evened things up after winning a big pot with a full house. That hand put them both dead even at 2.6 million each. Monnette then went on to take a nearly 2:1 chip lead over Baker during the Omaha 8 round before Baker answered back and regained control in the Razz portion of the match.

It wash’t long after regaining the chip lead for another time that Baker opened up his lead after winning a big Stud pot with a straight that put him over 4.4 million. With Monnette under 1 million, he brought in the 2Heart Suit for 20,000, Baker completed the bet to 80,000 with the 5Club Suit and Monnette called. Baker then bet 80,000 on fourth street and 160,000 on fifth street and Monnette called. Monnette checked his ace-high board on both sixth and seventh streets and then called one bet from Baker on each. Baker turned over two pair and raked the pot, leaving Monnette with just 1 big bet.

On the next and final hand of the night, Monnette was all in on third street with jack-high against baker’s split pair of sevens.
