Hand #293: It was an epic 187-hand heads-up match that last nearly seven hours, but it has finally come to an end. It happend when Eric Baldwin moved all in from the button for 1.025 million and Matt Waxman snap-called.
Waxman got it in good, but as we'd seen so many times before during the heads-up match, that didn't matter much. It seemed the railbirds expected a double, but the reality that it could be ending came when the flop gave Waxman a pair of aces and a huge lead.
Of course the turn had to bring a sweat, and it did when the dealer burned and turned the . Baldwin could stay alive with a five on the river, but this time it was not meant to be as the peeled off.
Baldwin was denied his second gold bracelet but left with $189,220 to held soothe the pain.
