Meet David Baker
2019 is already shaping up to be the year of David Baker. Baker won the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic, taking home over $1m.
Baker is a professional poker player domiciled in Los Angeles and usually plays at Commerce Casino. From the get-go, David Baker was already showing signs of making it to the final table after accumulating a substantial number of chips in the first few rounds.
As fate would have it, Baker was able to achieve a couple of milestones, including winning his first WPT poker classic title and cashing-in more than $1m.
“I’ve battled my whole life in this business. I care about this business. I care about the prestige of these things and I know sometimes some of the guys are a little too cool for school to say that, but I do. I’ve got a good résumé, I’ve been there a lot, but I’ve never won a major No Limit Hold’em tournament, I’ve never won a WPT, I’ve never had a million-dollar score and I just get to check off all of those boxes today and I’m overjoyed,” Baker commented shortly after winning the final table.
Without a doubt, the win meant a lot to David Baker and elevates his status in the poker community.
Speaking to PokerStars, Baker said, “I know that I’m considered a good poker player and even probably really good by my peers, but I want to be elite, I want to be thought of as elite[…]I know I’m not an elite No Limit Hold’em player. I know I’m not sitting down in the $100Ks and battling with the GOATs of GOATs, but I can still play man, I can still play with these guys in the $10Ks and all-around, I’ll take my all-around poker game versus anyone. I’ve always had this chip on my shoulder that I don’t know if I’ve always felt that I’ve gotten the respect that I deserve. I really feel like being able to put this on my resume really helps, at least helps me mentally just being able to do that.”
