David “ODB” Baker Wins WPT LA Poker Classic

David “ODB” Baker scored $1 million and a $15,000 seat to the WPT Baccarat Crystal Tournament of Champions Monday night at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas.

ODB defeated Matas Cimbola to take down the title.

“Without a doubt this would be the biggest win of my poker career,” Baker said heading into play at the Final Table. “I’ve got a pretty big poker reumé, but I have one glaring omission. I don’t have a WPT title. I have no major No Limit Hold’em title, and I have no million-dollar score. And I can check off all those boxes today.”

Check, check and check!

Congrats David!
