Hand #214 - Don Baruch Wins Event #21 ($264,107)

Don Baruch
Don Baruch
Hand #214 - Jared Davis has the button, and he's all in preflop with {A-Spades}{5-Clubs} against Don Baruch's {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}. Davis will need his hand to hold up to stay alive.

The flop comes {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}, and Baruch takes the lead with two pair, queens and nines. Davis's best hope is an ace.

The turn card is -- the {Q-Hearts}! Baruch turns a full house (queens full of nines) to clinch the pot. (The meaningless river card is the {8-Hearts}.)

Jared Davis is eliminated in second place, earning $149,263.

Don Baruch wins Event #21 ($1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout), earning $264,107, a Corum watch, and a coveted WSOP bracelet.
