We'll have a new champion in the $2,500 Eight-Game Mix as last year's winner, David "ODB" Baker, was recently eliminated.
We didn't catch all the details surrounding Baker's demise, but we do know that he was crippled by Allen Kessler in a hand of Stud when the "Chainsaw" made a flush on a board.
A few minutes later Baker was dispatched while playing the same game against Thomas "Thunder" Keller, who you may remember as the man who defeated Martin De Knijff heads up in the 2004 WSOP Event #13 $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em for $382,020. We're not sure of Baker's hand but we do know Keller had made an ace-high diamond flush.
Meanwhile, Kyle Julius has been eliminated from the tournament.
