After that astonishing check-raise bluff, Taylor had about an 80-20 chip advantage, but Darryll was again showing his class as a player and working hard to narrow the gap. He had taken back a few points when the final hand in the event occurred.
Darryll was on the button and raised to 45M holding . Taylor put together a 3bet to 140M holding . Darryll made the call.
Taylor was first to act, and bet 130M – and found a raise all-in from Darryll Fish. Taylor made the call as quickly as humanly possible… and the bad news was revealed to Darryll. All Taylor would have to do is fade three Queens or two Nines to take the championship!
Turn: – a terrible card for Darryll! Now making two pair was no longer good enough – he’s have to hit a Nine for a full house!
River: – two pair for Darryll, but counterfeit by the turn – no good!
And just like that, Taylor Black was the winner!
