Eric Baldwin took down the $5,250 PokerStars North American Poker Tour Bounty Shootout in Los Angeles Thursday.

The Team UB pro outlasted eight other finalists in what was a marathon final table to collect the winner-take-all $134,280 prize.

Baldwin, a former college baseball player who won a WSOP bracelet in 2009 and finished runner-up in the WPT Championship en route to CardPlayer Player of the Year honors, now has better than $3.3 million in career earnings.

The Bounty Shootout format saw 81 players seperated into nine tables of nine with a $1,000 bounty on each player and the survivors earning $20k and a seat at the final table.

All the action was recorded for broadcast on ESPN2.

Names like Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker, Barry Greenstein, Liv Boeree, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, actor Jason Alexander, Phil Hellmuth, Michael Mizrachi and Annette Obrestad all took part.

While Baldwin won, Justin Young collected the most bounties earning him a free seat in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Bounty Shootout event in the Bahamas this January.

Here's how the final nine finished:

1 Eric Baldwin $134,280 + $20,000 + $3,000 in bounties

2 Justin Young $20,000 + $6,000 in bounties
