David 'ODB' Baker outlasted a field of 541 runners to win 2019 WSOP Event #64 $1,500 Limit Hold'em. His final table included Greg FBT Mueller and Jesus Ferguson. ODB banked $161,139 and moved over $3M in career WSOP earnings. Also, over in Event #68, Nicky 'Illari' Baris won the bracelet in the $1,000 NL ONLINE CHAMPIONSHIP and a first-place prize worth $303,738.75. He also prevented Jesus Ferguson from winning a bracelet and denied David 'Bakes' Baker another title.

On the eve of the WSOP Main Event, things were humming along at the 2019 WSOP. A rare limit hold'em bracelet was up for grabs with Jesus at the final table in search of bling. Alas, it was one of the David Bakers who took down the Jesus. This time, OLD DAVID BAKER aka ODB stepped into the winner's circle for the second time in his career when he was the last one standing in the $1,500 donka-limit-ment.

Event #63 $1,500 Limit Hold'em - Final Results


Seven years. That's a long time in a dog's life. It's an eternity in the life of a poker player. I've always equated life on the circuit as a dog year. It takes 7 years off your life. If that's the case, ODB waited half a century to return to the podium.

ODB won his first bracelet back in 2012 in an 8-Game Mixed affair. He won $271K and slapped the bling around his wrist for the first time.

He patiently waited seven years and a week to restore the glory. Amen! ODB has two pieces of bling... and he denied Jesus Ferguson another bracelet in the process.

This year's $1,500 Limit Hold'em event attracted 541 runners and a modest prize pool of $730,350. Only the top 82 places paid out and only the winner cashed for six figures.

Kid Poker's deep run ended in 20th place. He missed out on another potential final table (he made three already this summer with a runner-up finish in 10K Stud), but will have to wait another day to win his seventh bracelet.

The final table featured... ODB Baker, Brian Kim, Dominzo Love, Japan's Ruiko Mamiya, Full Tilt's Jesus Ferguson, Chicong Nguyen, Kenneth Donoghue, Danny Woolard, and Greg Mueller.

Mueller hit the road in ninth place. Jesus' went to heaven in fifth place. Japan's Ruiko Mamiya's epic run ended in fourth place.

Domizo Love's busted out in third place set up the finale between ODB Baker and Brian Kim. Alas, Kim could not thwart ODB's mission to go all the way. Kim earned a runner-up payday worth $99,564. Not too shabby, eh?

ODB Baker won his second bracelet and $161K in cash. The bling mattered a lot... especially when you go seven years between big-time wins. Well done to ODB.

Notables who went deep and cashed in the Limit Hold'em event included... Matt Glantz, Roland Israelashvili, Daniel Negreanu, Shirley Rosario, Matt Matros, Alex Queen, Terrance Chan, Chip Jett, Ken Po, Otto Richard, Anna Wroblewski, Anthony Zinno, Jared Hemingway, and Brock Parker.

Event #68 $1,000 NL ONLINE CHAMPIONSHIP - Final Results

The WSOP continued to dole out bracelets with Sunday online events to cater to the old school Sunday Grinders. Ah, that's the one thing you miss the most about Sundays in America. It's not church or pro football or sleeping in or brunch or binge drinking or any of the stuff that makes America grandiose... no, it's the online poker grind on Sundays is what I miss the most... nothing like Sunday online poker action. At least the WSOP tried to replicate that magic with a series of online bracelet events on Sundays.

The $1K ONLINE CHAMPIONSHIP attracted 1,750 runners and a prize pool over $1.66 million. The top 180 places paid out in this one.

Cal Anderson, yes that CAL, bubbled the final table in tenth place.

The final table included Jesus Ferguson playing under the moniker 'camdi' and Bakes Baker. Also at the final table for this online bling event were Nicholas 'Illari' Baris, Tara

bertperton' Cain, William 'TheBurrSir' Lamb Harding, David 'YoungPitts' Baker aka BAKES, Jason 'LuckDuck' Lawhun, Jack 'Mr. Yang' Maskill, Antonio 'karma007' Guerrero, and Ryan 'PlzCumAgain' Jones.

Jesus busted in seventh place, while Bakes hit the bricks in fourth place.

TheBurrSir exited in third place, which set up the finale between bertperton and Illari. When the dust settled, bertperton busted in second place. For a runner up finish, Tara 'bertperton' Cain banked $187,530... not too shabby of a consolation prize, eh?

Nicky 'Illari' Baris won the bracelet and a first-place prize worth $303,738.75.

Among the notables who cashed in the ONLINE CHAMPIONSHIP event included... Mike Liang, Melanie Weisner, Jack Sinclair, Max Lykov, Matt Berkey, Vi Do, Max Silver, Stan Lee, Jeremy Wien, Dara O'Kearny, James Stewart, Matt Stout, Qi Ha, Thayer Rasmussen, Viet Vo, Tristan Wade, Natasha Mercier, John Racener, Ryan Riess, Brett Murray, Jaime Kaplan, Kevin Eyster, Erwann Pecheux, Jared Griener, Seth Davies, Clayton Maguire, Tony Cousineau, Amanda Leatherman, Tom Hall, Lee Watkinson, and Joao Vieira.
