Baker Beats Ivey And Hellmuth At WSOP $10k H.O.R.S.E.

Baker Beats Ivey And Hellmuth At WSOP $10k H.O.R.S.E.David “Bakes” Baker has won WSOP Event#32: $10k H.O.R.S.E., after defeating a field of 178 players over three days to capture a WSOP bracelet, as well as take down the $451,779 first place prize.
The H.O.R.S.E. event is a real test of a players all round abilities as it  consists of playing alternate rounds of  Texas Hold ’em, Omaha hi-low split-eight or better, Razz, Seven card Stud, and Seven card stud hi-low split-Eight or better.
Despite being just 25 years old, David Baker has already proved himself to be an accomplished pro having now won two WSOP bracelets, his first coming in 2010 at the $10k No Limit Deuce-to-Seven event for $294,321. With his latest victory in Las Vegas, Baker has now boosted his live tournament winnings to $2,272,426, to go with his $2,958,592 won playing online under the screen name “Bakes.”
Following his remarkable win, the Michigan resident commented: “The first one was nice, but it was only a 100 person tourney and it was in a game that I had practiced, but people don’t play as much and just didn’t have as much prestige as this one. There were a lot of very good players at the final table who were on top of their game so this one feels a little more of an accomplishment.”
Amongst those top players mentioned were none other than Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey, as well as other top pros such as Dan Kelly and Abe Mosseri.
This was Phil Ivey’s fourth final table appearance at the 2012 WSOP but ultimately Ivey failed to pick up a 9th WSOP bracelet after being eliminated in 5th ($99,739) during a Razz round. The 36 year old poker legend has now earned $551,234 from 5 cashes at WSOP 2012, so far.
Phil Hellmuth was then next to exit in 4th ($134,056) during a round of Omaha Hi-Lo, with David Baker eventually beating John Monnette during the final heads-up phase to earn the winners bracelet.
The final table results were as follows:
1. David Baker – $451,779
2. John Monnette – $279,206
3. Paul Sokoloff – $183,784
4. Phil Hellmuth – $134,056
5. Phil Ivey – $99,739
6. Abe Mosseri – $75,511
7. Matt Waxman – $58,093
8. Dan Kelly – $45,360
