Event 8: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Baldwin with an Early Wheel

• Taso 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Three players including World Series of Poker bracelet winner Eric Baldwin put in two bets preflop before the {5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop came down. Baldwin led with a bet and the next player called. The third player raised and both Baldwin and the other player made the call.

The turn was the {10-Hearts} and everyone checked to see the {Q-Diamonds} land on the turn. Baldwin bet out and was called by both of his opponents.

Baldwin showed the {A-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for a wheel that was good enough to scoop the high and the low to win the entire pot.

Baldwin earned his WSOP gold bracelet in 2009 when he won a $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em for $521,991. He has two other WSOP final tables and also an 11th-place finish in the 2010 $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Championship for $34,814.
