NAPT Los Angeles Bounty Shootout won by Eric Baldwin

Eric “basebaldy” Baldwin, a UB.com Poker Pro, won the North American Poker Tour Los Angeles Bounty Shootout and earned himself a sizeable $134,000. He won against Justin Young in heads up and managed to beat a very challenging final table.

The Final Table

Nine people went back for the final table of the Bounty Shootout. Among them was Kevin “ImaLuckSac” MacPhee, an EPT winner. However, his success at the EPT did not rub off on his NAPT run, as he was the first one to be eliminated. Still, he earned himself a nifty $20,000 along with $3,000 in bounties, so all’s good. The next one to go was Michael Mizrachi, 2010 November Niner and famous poker pro. A lot of the attention was focused on Mizrachi in this tournament because he seemed to be in a good position to win, but alas, he was eliminated at eighth. Still, all things considered, Mizrachi is having an excellent year, especially since he earned more than $2 million for his finish at the WSOP main event.

To finish deep in yet another tournament just proves this pro’s prowess. Pat Pezzin was the next one to go after Mizrachi, followed by Clint Coffee. Tom “Kingsof cards” Marchese was the next one to be eliminated, finishing at fifth place. He was followed closely by Moshin Charania, then David William. This left only Justin Young and Eric Baldwin to battle it out in the heads up portion of the game.

Heads up with Young and Baldwin

When Heads Up play began, Baldwin was quick to double-up. Young fought back, though, creating a pretty fierce heads up battle. It only came to a halt when Young went all in with his A-Q. It was a pretty decent hand, but nothing in comparison to Baldwin’s Pocket Kings. He needed an ace to put him ahead of Baldwin. However, it was as if the board was mocking Young, as none of the cards were any help. In fact, the only thing the community cards did was to strengthen Baldwin’s hand even more. With that, Baldwin cemented his win and earned the title. Young did not go home empty handed though, even if he just got the same $20,000 as those who were eliminated before at the final table.

He managed to get the most bounties, earning himself an extra $6,000. Baldwin, on the other hand, had only $3,000 in bounties.
