2010 PCA Main Event

Early Pressure on Baron

Isaac Baron is down to 26,500 early after losing a recent pot to an unknown opponent.

Baron opened the pot with a raise from the button and his nemesis repopped it an additional 550 from the big blind. Baron made the call.

The flop came down {5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Baron called a 750 continuation bet from his opponent.

Both players checked the {A-Hearts} on the turn, sending the action straight to 5th Street which brought the {Q-Spades}. Baron's opponent then fired a 2,100 value bet and Baron made the call only to see his opponent turn over {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} for a runner-runner top two. Baron mucked, leaving himself with 26,500 in chips.
