Baldwin Doubles Through Koon

Level 23 : 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Hand #23: Jason Koon raised to 40,000 under the gun and cleared the field to Eric Baldwin, who moved all in for 323,000 from the small blind. Koon made the call with the {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} but was in dire straits against the {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} of Baldwin. The {8-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop paired both players, but Baldwin's king kicker had him firmly in the lead. Neither the {J-Spades} turn nor {5-Diamonds} river was what Koon needed, and he was knocked down to 97,000.
