Share this

It took a little over six levels for the seven-handed final table to find a champion and Jesse Martin was 'da man' who beat out 2010 champion David "Bakes" Baker to stack the $153,524 in first-place prize money and grab the gold bracelet in Event 43.

Martin is a well-known high stakes online player known as "MazeOrBowie" and he climbed up through a field of 87 runners that had some of the toughest players known throughout the poker world today to add a bracelet to his poker resume. Martin started the final day with a short stack but started climbing and in the end, battled it out with Baker to grab the gold.

6Layne Flack$35,549
7John Hennigan$27,644

Six-time WSOP bracelet winner Layne Flack held the chip lead at the start of the final table and John Hennigan became the first player to head for the cashier. Flack was eliminated by Martin in sixth place — and then it was Jon Turner and Jeff Lisandro heading for the rail — and finally Baker and Martin were heads-up for the title. Baker was at his fourth final table of the series and looking for his first bracelet of the summer.

On the final hand Jesse Martin made it 62,000 on the button and David "Bakes" Baker answered by going all-in for 447,000. Martin called and both players drew one.

Baker: {9-}{6-}{5-}{2-}
Martin: {8-}{7-}{3-}{2-}

Baker suggested both players turn over their draw card at the same time. Baker had a {K-} and Martin showed a {10-} for a 10-low and Baker was relegated to returning another day to vie for a gold bracelet.

Jesse Martin won gold and $253,524 and became quite emotional when he talked about his victory with Lynn Gilmartin:
