Eric Baldwin

The {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop was on the board and a bet of 1525 was in front of Eric Baldwin who was sitting on the button. The big blind raised to 19,500. This gave Baldwin some pause as he took the time to count his chips and debate his options.

Baldwin eventually put his chips in the middle and tabled {10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. Someone at the table said he had to call that, Baldwin's response, "Yeah, but it's the Main Event" indicating how important this tournament is to him.

His opponent turned up {k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Baldwin found help when the turn came {a-Hearts}. As if often the case, it is never easy and Baldwin needed to avoid another heart. He did just that as the river was the {6-Spades}. Baldwin gets some chips but still has a lot of work to do.
