“I mean, I ran so good to get here,” said Peacock. “I came in to Day 2 with like 12 big blinds and then just won all of my all ins for the tournament life. That’s the strategy, right? Play good, run good? I was ahead in almost all of them and the worst-case scenario was a flip. It’s crazy.”

Final Table Results:

1st: Robert Peacock - $644,224
2nd: Nicholas Salimbene - $397,908

Eric Baldwin won his first bracelet nearly a decade ago. He won a $1,500 no-limit hold’em event in 2009 and won the same event nine years later for his second. Baldwin topped a field of 1,330 entries to win his second bracelet and $319,580.

“It’s surreal,” said Baldwin about the entire experience. “My mom came out and surprised me. I had no idea she was coming, so it ended up being a blessing that we didn’t end up finishing last night. It gave her a chance to come out here and see it and that is pretty cool.”
