David "ODB" Baker raised to 55,000 from the cutoff only to have Jack Ward three-bet to 201,000 from the button. Both blinds got out of the way, Baker potted, and Ward called off for 259,000 total.

Baker: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Ward: {A-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

"You can pair that card," Ward told Baker about his four on the {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}, eluding to the fact that he would make a wheel. It was certainly wishful thinking, and a wish that would not come true as the {5-Spades} appeared on the turn followed by the {3-Diamonds} on the river.

Ward was all smile as he shook hands with a few players and then exited the stage in seventh place, good for $43,840.
