Former Baseball Player Wins MSPT $1,100 Event
Monday at the Venetian, increasing his career earnings by $80,872.
“basebaldy’s” career took off in 2006. To date, his best tournament earning is $521,991, which he won in the 2009 World Series of Poker (WSOP).
Baldwin prevailed a field of over 377 entries to win the trophy in the $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em, which had a $368,475 guaranteed prize pool.
At the final table, the 35-year-old player took the lead and eliminated two of his opponents — American players Rudy Cadenas and Jason Gooch. English participant Richard Schneiderman showed resistance; however, “basebaldy” dominated with an ace-king.
The runner-up got $49,990.
Gooch took third place, while Cadenas finished fourth, winning together a total of $63,223.
Eric Baldwin is a two-time WSOP bracelet winner whose net worth is valued at more than $6 million.
