Taylor Rakes a Big One

• Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante
John Taylor

Charles Nguyen raised on the button to 14,000 and John Taylor made the call in the big blind. The flop was {9-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}. Taylor checked, Nguyen fired 17,000 and Taylor called. The turn was the {8-Clubs} and again Taylor checked. Nguyen bet 23,000 and Taylor came back with a raise to 63,000.

Nguyen made the call and the river was the {a-Clubs}. Taylor quickly announced he was all in for 62,000. Nguyen thought for a moment and eventually made the big call. "Straight," Taylor exclaimed, flipping over the {5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, bettering the {j-Spades}{9-Hearts} of Nguyen.

Nguyen lost a big chunk of his stack and Taylor is now near the chip lead.
