will_shill • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
Stephen Baker

Peter Sweeney opened to 45,000 and Stephen Baker defended his big blind.

The flop came {4-}{5-}{q-} and Baker checked. Sweeney continued for 45,000 and Baker check-raised to 175,000. Sweeney re-raised to 340,000 and Baker shoved. Sweeney called with {j-}{j-} but was behind to the {4-}{5-} of Baker.

The turn {10-} and river {a-} changed nothing and Sweeney was eliminated, with Baker moving up to well over 1.5m in chips.

Meanwhile, Colin Lovelock and Ali Sakallioglu have been eliminated, bringing the total number of remaining players down to 30.
