WSOP 2021: David ‘Bakes’ Baker Wins Third Career Bracelet, Negreanu and Hellmuth In $10K Dealers Choice Final ten

David ‘Bakes’ Baker won his third WSOP bracelet following a gap of nine years with a dominant final table efficiency on Day 20 at the Rio.

It was a busy day inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino on Tuesday with three gold bracelets being won and a constellation of poker stars battling in the Amazon space.

Michael Noori, David ‘Bakes’ Baker, and Anthony Koutsos all won gold. At the identical time, high roller superstar Michael Addamo took the lead in the $50K Higher Roller, and both Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu produced the final 10 in the $10K Dealers Choice occasion.

Michael Noori Earns Monster $610K Score

Following 4 days of relentless poker, three,520 entries played down to a winner in the Thunderdome as Michael Noori won the $1,500-entry Monster Stack for $610,437. Taking down the final table, Noori triumphed against Ryan Leng heads-up after a gorgeous comeback from much less than two massive blinds earlier in the day.

Heading into the final table, Noori was some way back from the leaders, with Leng top the way with 57 massive blinds to Noori’s 26 huge blinds. With ten players at the felt, the man at the best of the leaderboard was Jaesh Balachandran, but he busted in 10th location for $51,286. Balachandran shoved with KcQc and was called by Mordechai Hazan with AhAd, with a board of 9s7h4sAsAc minimizing the field to nine.

It was Anthony Ortega who busted subsequent as his KdKh wandered into a enormous clash against Christopher Andler’s AhAc, with a seven-higher board sending Ortega house for $64,490. Ortega was followed from the felt by Johan Schumacher who busted in eighth location for $81,573. Schumacher raised then known as off his four huge blind stack pre-flop with Ac6s but was nicely behind Rafael Reis’ 6h6d. The board of KsJhTh8d5c saw Schumacher catch a Broadway draw from the flop but he couldn’t find a queen to save his stack.

Reis took the lead with that hand, and at that point Noori was struggling on just 13 big blinds, second last on the leaderboard. The eventual winner dropped to short stack when Daniel Fortier was busted in seventh place for $103,784 with QcTc committed pre-flop against Mordechai Hazan’s KcKh. Fortier was drawing dead from the turn on a board displaying 8h6d5sKsTs.

Noori needed a double desperately, and it was Hazan who would oblige when Noori three-bet shoved with pocket sevens and was known as by Hazan’s pocket jacks. Noori necessary aid and got it on the 9c8d7c flop, but still needed to sweat a ten that would have offered Hazan an unbeatable straight. Even so, the 4d turn and 2d river saw Noori double up and that began his epic run to victory.

Hazan’s stack was mortally broken, and he busted next for $132,812 in sixth spot. Hazan moved all-in with KsQs and was called by Leng with KhKc. The board of 9c4s3h5cTc saw Hazan on the rail and Leng moved into the lead with 75 million chips, with Noori (45m) his closest challenger at that stage.

Charlie Dawson busted in fifth place for $170,943 when his all-in with 8c8h was called by Leng with AsKs. The flop of Th7c4h saw Dawson remain in the lead, and that stayed the case with the Jc turn, but the river of Ad flipped the script and sent Dawson home in fifth.

There was an extended period of play that followed without anyone busting, but ultimately, Andler met with defeat for $221,289. He was all-in with As2d and in genuine difficulty against ThTd following a board of 9c4d2cQh7d played out. Noori winning that hand was crucial, with the American vaulting over Reis in the chip counts, although Leng had a enormous lead at the time with double his two opponents’ stacks.

Reis would bust in third spot for $288,101 as he pushed his final eight huge blinds over the line with JcTs and was called by Noori with Jd7d. With a flop of 8h5c3h keeping Reis ahead, the 7s turn changed that and place Noori in command of the hand and the 4s river ended the hand with the Brazilian heading to the cash desk.

Heads-up started with Leng holding an virtually exact 2:1 chip lead. That was not the case for extended, nevertheless, as Noori was all-in just ten minutes into the duel with a turned straight topping Leng’s flopped best two pair. Over the subsequent handful of hands, Leng battled back, but Noori grew his lead right after winning some little bets to improve his lead to 3:1 ahead of the final hand.

Soon after a board of Th6h4c7c arrived by the turn, Leng attempted a worth bluff, raise-shoving Kc8c. Noori, however, held QsQh and produced the contact, needing to fade kings, nines, fives and clubs to grow to be a 1st-time WSOP champion. Noori needed to fade a enormous 18 outs, but that was precisely what occurred when the 7h river eliminated Leng in second spot for $377,220 and he fell just quick of his second live WSOP bracelet of the 2021 Globe Series. Noori was the titleholder as an alternative, winning the $610,437 top prize and grabbing gold for the first time in his career, celebrating on the rail with his buddies as Leng was left with a rueful smile about what might have been.

Following Gilad Grinberg lost a coinflip to bust in 10th location for $12,944, Fausto Valdez did the identical. It was Kanterjian who won that hand, pocket sevens flopping a set against jack-ten suited for the chip leader to improve his energy at the table and send Valdez residence for $16,324.

The legendarily named John Moss busted in eighth spot for $20,753 just before he was joined on the rail by Ronald Ibbetson (7th for $26,595) and Jacob Wealthy (6th for $34,353). By that stage, Dongsheng Zhang was a single of the most strong players at the table, and he busted Sundiata DeVore in fifth spot for $44,725 when Zhang’s TsTc held against DeVore’s 8d8c.

Down to four, the next player to go was Jonah Lopas, who moved all-in pre-flop with Ks3d but was named by Koutsos with AcJs and couldn’t catch him on the AdTc7c3c9d board. Lopas cashed for $58,685 in fourth and he was joined on the rail by Zhang in third for $77,600 when Zhang’s shove with Qs9c was doomed by Koutsos’ AhQc on an eight-high board.

Heads-up swung this way and that for a full three hours until the average stack was worth less than 20 huge blinds. Koutsos had QcQs and had an simple call when Kanterjian shoved pre-flop with 8h6c. The flop of 6d3d3c gave Kanterjian hope of a miracle by pairing his six, but soon after the 4s turn, the Ks river saw Koutsos take the title and enormous $167,272 top prize. Kanterjian took $103,402 for coming second, with Koutsos winning his 1st-ever WSOP title soon after his biggest prior money was for just $5,000 before this defining poker outcome of his life.
