Just before the break, Jay Graunstadt shoved all in from middle position for 53,500 and John Taylor called from the big blind with {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. Graunstadt needed to hold to stay alive, but the flop proved it is never easy as the {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts} gave Taylor an open-ended straight draw.

The {j-Clubs} turn paired Taylor and now he just needed to fade an ace to eliminate Graunstadt. The {8-Clubs} on the river completed Taylor's straight and Graunstadt was sent packing.
