Damian Baldi Eliminated in 11th Place (AU$95,000)
Level 21 : 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
We didn't catch the action until the flop when Damian Baldi got his remaining stack of approximately 400,000 all in on a flop of and was at risk against Dan Shak.
Baldi got it in good with an overpair and the rail, which was pro-Baldi, went nuts. With that said, Shak had an up-and-down straight draw, which meant he could still win with either a seven, three or eight. The rail began to cheer when the dealer burned and turned the , but they soon realized Shak had hit the straight to leave Baldi drawing dead.
The rail's enthusiasm quickly disappeared when they realized the man from Melbourne had been eliminated in 11th place. The was run out on the river for good measure, and Sam Cohen was brought over to fill Baldi's seat.
