Waxman Doubles Back into the Chip Lead

Level 27 : 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #131: Eric Baldwin limped the button and then called when Matt Waxman raised to 150,000. Baldwin then called bets of 100,000 and 250,000 on the {k-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} flop and {9-Clubs} turn respectively, leading to the {7-Spades} on the river.

Waxman moved all in for his last million and Baldwin snap-called. The man known as "basebaldy" showed the {A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} for a flopped two pair, but it was no good as Waxman had turned a set with the {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

With that, Waxman had regained the chip lead.
