David Baker - 14th Place

After a raise on the button from Roberto Romanello to 7,000, David "ODB" Baker reraised all in for a little over 60,000 from the big blind. Romanello called holding the {A-Spades}{10-Spades}. Baker held the {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}.

Baker flopped the lead when the {K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} rolled out, but after the {6-Diamonds} landed on the turn, the dealer finished the board with the {A-Clubs} and Romanello was awarded the pot. Baker finished in 14th place and took home €6,548.

With his finish, Baker also earned some valuable World Series of Poker Player of the Year points. His finish earned him 8.75 points and moved him to 517.13 points overall. That's good enough to leap over Antonio Esfandiari into fourth place behind John Monnette, Phil Ivey and the leader Greg Merson.

Jennifer Tilly Eliminated in 17th Place (€6,548)

Jennifer Tilly - 17th Place

Jennifer Tilly raised all in for 20,900 from the hijack seat before action fell on Matan Krakow in the cutoff seat. He took a minute to think about things, then made the call. On the button was Ruben Velasco and he squeezed his cards slow. Then, he reraised to an even 50,000. Action folded back to Krakow and he also gave it up, leaving Tilly all in and at risk against Velasco.

Velasco: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Tilly: {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}

As you can see, Tilly wasn't in good shape, but there wasn't much she could do. The board ran out {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} and Velasco's three queens gave him the bounty. Tilly finished in 17th place for over €6,500.
