Four events played down to a champion with three players becoming first-time bracelet winners. Eric 'basebaldy' Baldwin won his second bracelet with a victory in Event #37 $1,500 NL, which was worth $319,580. Meanwhile, Rob Peacock won Event #34 $1,000 DOUBLE STACK NL for a score worth $644,224. Preston Lee took down Event #39 $1,500 SHOOTOUT for $236,498. Lastly, Scott Bohlman from Chicago binked Event #40 $2,500 Mixed Big Bet for his first bracelet and $122,138.

It wasn't a basic Thursday night in Las Vegas. If you stopped by the Rio Casino, you could have seen four different events crown a new champion. Three players made history by winning their first bracelets, while another pro added a second piece of jewelry to his collection. The WSOP is more than halfway complete.

Eric Baldwin is the true DONKMASTER. He's won a Donkament not once, but twice. Bravo, basebaldy, bravo! Baldwin won his second bracelet and second donkament with a win in Event #37 $1,500 NL. Cash-game specialist Rob Peacock faded a field of 5,700 runners to win Event #34 $1,000 DOUBLE STACK NL for his first bracelet and $644,224 in cash. Preston Lee notched his first bracelet when he shipped Event #39 $1,500 NL SHOOTOUT for nearly $237K. Scott Bohlman, a financial investor from Chicago, won his first bracelet with victory in Event #40 $2,500 Mixed Big Bet. Bohlman beat Ryan Hughes heads-up for the win.

Event #34 $1,000 DOUBLE STACK NL - Final Results


Las Vegas-based cash game grinder, Robert Peacock, went all the way to the Promised Land to win his first bracelet. Peacock doesn't play a lot of tournaments. Overall, he cashed in only seven WSOP events and made one final table.

Peacock was an online grinder for many years until Black Friday forced his hand. Instead of heading overseas to be an exile, Peacock relocated to Las Vegas to pursue the life of a cash game grinder.

According to reports, Peacock had one of the loudest and most boisterous rails of the summer.

Peacock outlasted a massive field of 5,700 runners. The prize pool topped $5.1 million. Peacock walked away with the bling and $644,224 in cash.

Japan's Takao Shimizu was the first player out at the final table. Shimizu was seeking Japan's first bracelet this summer.

Danny Einchorn's deep run ended in sixth place. Ralph Wong busted in fifth, while Jack Wong was dunzo in fourth.

Action was suspended with three remaining. They needed an additional fourth day of action to determine the DOUBLE STACK champ. On Day 4, Josh Turner was picked off in third place, which set up a heads-up battle between Rob Peacock and Nick Salimbene.

Quick heads-up. It was Peacock's day and the poker gods blessed him. Salimbene banked a shade under $398K for second place, while Peacock won the bling and a sick score worth $644K.

Who didn't cash in Event #34? At least 856 players were paid out.

Tomas Teran Paredes bubbled off the final table in tenth place. Matt Stout missed the final table by a few spots when he busted in 12th place.

Notables who went deep-deep-deep in the DOUBLE STACK and finished in the Top 101 included... Matt Berkey, Mike Moore, Tristan Wade, Tony Dunst, Maria Lampropulos, Lee Markholt, Tony Spinella.

Familiar names who cashed in the DOUBLE STACK included...

Event #37 $1,500 NL - Final Results


The legendary basebaldy went yard once again!

Eric 'basebaldy' Baldwin won his first bracelet back in 2009 during the height of the online poker boom. The former college baseball player won of the first donkaments, which had a ginormous field. He earned one heck of a payout back then with a booty worth nearly $522K.

It took him nine years before he hit another long ball at the Rio. It was another donkament. The 1,330-runner field was a tad thinner, but the players equally dangerous and donk-centric. Baldwin was the last player standing in Event #37 $1,500 NL.

Tough final table all things considered. Steve Song busted in seventh place. Aaron Massey's remarkable run ended in fourth place.

With two to go, Baldwin faced 2016 Online Player of the Year Ian Steinman heads up for the cash and bracelet. Baldwin picked off the young gun Steinman heads-up for the victory. Steinman won $197K for a consolation prize.

Baldwin banked $319,580 for first place. Baldwin dedicated the bracelet win to his late father. All hail the Donkamster! Two times!! I think this feat is one of the greatest double-wins in the history of the WSOP.

Baldwin now has 75 cashes at the WSOP with seven final tables and two bracelets. His total WSOP earnings have passed $2.3 million.

Jason Guarinello bubbled off the final table in tenth place .An even 200 players were paid out in this event.

Notables who went deep in Event #37 included... JC Tran, Ryan Laplante, Jason Wheeler, Jay Farber, Jake Schwartz, Jack Duong, and Todd Witteles.

Familiar faces who cashed in this donkament included... Mike Sexton, Maria Ho, Jonas Lauck, Jack Sinclair, Alexis Fleur, Walter Treccarichi, Anatoly Filatov, Stephen King, Yang Zhang, Eoghan O'Dea, Jesus Ferguson, Maria Konnikova, Been Keeline, John Strzemp, Svetlana Gromenkova, Alex Keating, Raf Lebron, Amit Makhija, and Sebastian Comel.

Event #39 $1,500 NL SHOOTOUT - Final Results


Ship it to the LANDLORD!

Preston Lee, a local pro from San Francisco, won the SHOOTOUT to earn his first bracelet. First place in Event #39 $1,500 NL Shootout paid out $236,498. Lee faded a field of 908 "SNG" specialists.

The final ten at the final table included a couple of top pros. Lee outlasted all of them too and denied Anthony Reategui a shot at a second bracelet.

Event #40 $2,500 Mixed Big Bet - Final Results


Another mixed-game event. This Big Bet variety was six-handed. Only 205 players took a shot in Event #40 $2,500 Mixed Big Bet.

What is mixed big bet? According to the WSOP, it's... Big O, NL, NL 2-7 Lowball Draw, PLO8, NL 5-Card Draw High, PLO, and PL 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw.

The final table was not an easy one. I wouldn't want to be seated there, especially with two-time bracelet winner Ryan Hughes staring me down. Also in the mix were WSOP Circuit ring winner Dan Weinman, Aaron Rogers (not the NFL player), Dutch pro Marcel Vonk, and Jeremy Harkin, who shipped a bracelet earlier this summer

Scott Bohlman certainly earned every cent he won and the shiny piece of bling that he slapped on his wrist. This Mixed Big Bet final table did not have a soft spot. Heck, Bohlman was the soft spot and he still survived against several top-notch pros.

Dan Weiman busted in third place, which set up a heads-up fight to the death between Ryan Hughes and Scott Bohlman.

Alas, Ryan Hughes couldn't stop Bohlman and he had to settle on a consolation prize worth $75K.

Scott Bohlman earned $122,138 for first place. Oh, and the bling. Scwhing!

Johnny World Hennigan missed a final table by six spots. This is Johnny World's World this summer in Las Vegas. The front runner for WSOP Player of the Year added a few more points to his lead.

Only the top 31 places paid out in this Mixed Big Bet event.

The one and only Jeff Lisandro bubbled off the final table in seventh place. Lisandro missed a shot at another final table and another bracelet.

Notables who cashed included... Warwick Mirzikinian (8th), Ray Henson (9th), Italy's Dario Sammartino (10th), Barry Greenstein (11th), Johnny World Hennigan (12th), Shaun Deeb (13th), Shiva Dudani (14th), Joe Couden (15th), Alex Defelice (16th), Mike Matusow (17th), Naoya Kihara (18th), Magnus Edengren (19th), Scott Clements (20th), Andrew Kelsall (21st), Eli Elezra (22nd), David ODB Baker (23rd), Brandn Shack-Harris (24th), Jerry Wong (25th), Bruno Fitoussi (26th), Max Pescatori (27th), Tyler Meservy (28th), Perry Green (29th), Randy Ohel (30th), and Jesus Ferguson (31st).

Yes, Jesus Ferguson min-cashed in this event for $3,777. Another baby cash for Jesus who has now cashed nine times this summer, mostly small balls and one deep run with a final table Stud.
