Eric Baldwin dedicates second bracelet to father


 

The 2018 World Series of Poker has seen several first-time winners being crowned, but this event would not be one of them. Steinman held a nice little lead yesterday, but the tables turned, and Baldwin took control before the two players bagged up on Day 3 of the tournament.

Steinman didn’t go down without a fight, recovering to almost equal the chip stacks. However, in what turned out to be the final hand, he held the lead post-flop with pocket kings over Baldwin’s A-J. Fortunes were then about to change with both players all-in, as the turn opened J and Baldwin rivering an Ace, striking two pairs and taking down the title.

This turned out to be Baldwin’s second WSOP gold bracelet, with the first one coming way back in 2009 – 9 years ago! His father had been present at most his final tables, but never seen him win. The one WSOP tournament he won, his mother was present, but his father had to miss it. He then passed away three years ago, and Baldwin dedicated this win to his late father. “In a lot of ways, this one is for him,” said an emotional Baldwin.

After 5 small cashes at the 2018 World Series of Poker, Baldwin registered a big score of $319,580 for shipping this tournament, taking his live poker winnings past the $6 million mark. On the other hand, Steinman registered the second biggest live poker tournament cash of his career.
