Taylor Paur (5th Place- $198,140)
Taylor Paur (5th Place- $198,140)

Action folded to Taylor Paur on the button and he raised to 130,000. Bertrand Grospellier folded in the small blind, allowing Joe ebanks to three-bet to 290,000 from the big. Paur moved all in for around 1.7 million, and Ebanks snap-called.

Paur: {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Ebanks: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

The crowd was on its feet and the noise in the "Thunder Dome" increased ten-fold. Paur was at risk, but his five were currently the best hand. Unfortunately for him, that changed when the {Q-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop delivered Ebanks a pair of queens.

The {6-Hearts} turn sent some "ohs" and "Ahs" through the crowd given it was so close to a five, but it still left Paur wanting. The dealer burned and put out the {8-Spades}, putting an end to Paur's tournament in fifth place.
