David Baker wins $10k World Championship 2-7 Draw Lowball

David Baker wins $10k World Championship 2-7 Draw Lowball

Saturday, 12 June 2010

The field for the final day of the $10k World Championship 2-7 Draw Lowball was a stacked one with multiple bracelet winners Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel and John Juanda plus perennial nearly man Andy Bloch all in attendance. None could match David Baker though who picked up his first WSOP bracelet.

Like Eric Buchman in the $2k Limit Hold Em event, Baker went into the final table with a big chip lead and like last year's November Niner he went on an elimination binge, knocking out his final six opponents not to mention Daniel Negreanu in eighth.

The win puts Baker in a good spot for the WSOP Player of the Year after his previous sixth place finish in the $50k Mixed Game Championship.

Someone else who'll be pleased with Baker's victory is Justin Bonomo who was taking bets that a resident from Panorama Towers would win a bracelet at this year's WSOP. As Baker is a resident at said address, ZeeJustin has reason to celebrate too.

Peter Gould was the only Briton to make the money, finishing in 19th place for $19,272.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1 David Baker $294,314
2 Eric Cloutier $181,886
3 George Danzer $115,295
4 John Juanda $78,088
5 Doug Booth $55,483
6 Erik Seidel $41,270
7 Eric Kesselman $32,080
