Hand #270: In the 270th hand of the final table, Eric Baldwin raised his button to 300,000. Ian Steinman glanced at his cards and cut out 950,000, leaving himself 2,185,000 behind.

Baldwin took a good look at how much Steinman had behind. He then announced all in and Steinman quickly called.

Ian Steinman: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}
Eric Baldwin: {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}

Steinman's rail shouted for a king in the window. They wouldn't get it, but the {2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop wasn't too bad either.

The {J-Spades} on the turn paired up Baldwin but it wasn't enough just yet.

The dealer burned the top card and put the river out: {A-Clubs}!

With the rivered two pair, Baldwin was celebrated as the winner of Event #37: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em. Steinman and Baldwin shook hands before the official bracelet photos were taken by Joe Giron.

An extensive recap of the final table and today's action is to follow.
