Eric Baldwin Eliminated in 5th Place ($101,948)

Jamie Armstrong started this recent hand off by raising it up. Action folded over to Noah Vaillancourt in the small blind who three-bet to 175,000. Next it was to Eric Baldwin who moved all in for 710,000. Armstrong folded and Vaillancourt went deep into the tank. Vaillancourt clearly was not very confident in his hand and took his time determining if he even had a chance at winning. Eventually he did indeed complete the call and put Baldwin at risk.

Baldwin: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}
Vaillancourt: {A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}

An {2-Spades}{A-Spades}{3-Spades} flop was exposed and Baldwin sky rocketed into the lead with a pair of aces. Baldwin though could still hit a spade to steal the advantage back. A {6-Diamonds} on the turn and a {a-Clubs} on the river sealed the deal and Baldwin was sent packing.
