Rich's Stack Gets a Little Richer

• Taso 5: 150-300, 25 ante

Rich Baker, one of the current chip leaders, hasn't been involved in too many pots recently. We saw him put out a raise to 750 in early position pre-flop and tell the table, "Come on let me win one! It's been an hour!" The big blind wouldn't give up without a fight and decided to call. Both players checked after a flop of {3-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{10-Hearts} and again after the {10-Clubs} fell on the turn. When the {q-Hearts} came on the river, the big blind checked again and Baker bet 1,000. That was apparently enough as the big blind folded and Baker took the pot.
