Taylor Takes Porter Out

LiveReporter • Level 17: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Thomas Taylor

Rep Porter has just come unstuck and it was in a hand involving Thomas Taylor and Phil Hellmuth.

According to Taylor, Hellmuth had opened the betting preflop, making it 2,500 and got two calls from Taylor behind and from Porter in the small blind.

The flop came {6-}{6-}{3-} and Porter checked. Hellmuth continued for 5,500 and Taylor flat-called. With the action back on Porter, he upped it to 17,000 and that was enough to push out Hellmuth but not Taylor, who moved all in over the top and Porter called.

Rep Porter: {8-}{8-}
Thomas Taylor: {9-}{9-}

The turn and river bricked for Porter, and he was out.
