Chris Viox, Christopher McHugh, Konstantin Puchkov, Donnacha O'Dea, Joseph Couden and Kevin Calenzo were eliminated in this order to leave Greg Mueller and David Baker return for a 4th day to finish the finale.

Greg Mueller: 2,655,000
David Baker: 925,000


Baker started off better, reducing his handicap gradually to eventually make it in the lead. After a major pot lost to Baker in Razz, Mueller dropped down to only 600,000 in chips, and they shoved on the 5th street in another Razz hand.

Mueller: 3-Q / A-8-4-Q / 8
Baker: 2-T / A-6-7-3 / 5


Baker’s hand held out for his first WSOP bracelet in his career.
