Event #53: $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Cowan Doubles Through Baker


Amanda Baker raised to 24,000 in the cutoff and was called by Jennifer Cowan on the button and Carol Tomlinson from the big blind. Tomlinsonchecked dark as the {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Clubs} came down on the flop. Baker bet 33,000 and Cowan moved all in for 161,000 total. Tomlinson folded and Baker went into the tank before she called.

Cowan: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Baker: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

Cowan had flopped top set while Baker had a flush draw and would need to hit a club that didn’t pair the board to knock out her opponent. The {4-Spades} on the turn had Baker drawing dead and the {6-Hearts} on the river doubled up Cowan.
