Amanda Baker Eliminated in 7th Place ($20,572)

Mateusz_Pater • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Mandy Baker

Hand #82

Shana Matthews opened to 35,000 from the button, which was enough to see her take down the blinds and antes.

Hand #83

Shana Matthews opened once again to 35,000 from the cut off, before Leanne Haas raised it up to 75,000 from the big blind. With action back on Matthews, she made the call, as both players saw the flop come down {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Haas checked over to Matthews, who bet out 65,000, before Haas quickly came back, announcing all in, which brought a fold moments later.

Hand #84

Kristen Bicknell opened to 32,000, and watched as all her opponents folded their hands.

Hand #85

Kristen Bicknell opened to 32,000, before Amanda Baker moved all in for 273,000. Bicknell asked for a count, before making the call, as both players tabled their cards.

Bicknell: {A-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Baker: {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Baker was behind and at risk, until the flop came down {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, giving her the lead with a pair of tens. Bicknell’s rail pleaded for a queen, and that’s just what they received, as the dealer rolled over the {q-Hearts} to give Bicknell back her lead. Baker was unable to find a ten on the river, as the {7-Hearts} completed the board, seeing her eliminated in 7th place.
