Esther Taylor: {x-}{x-}/{6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{4-Hearts}/{x-}
Carol Fuchs: {x-}{x-}/{7-Hearts}{a-Spades}{3-Clubs}{a-Hearts}/{x-}

Carol Fuchs completed and was called by Esther Taylor. Fuchs continued betting through to seventh, when Taylor led out with a bet.

Fuchs called and turned over {3-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Diamonds} for two pair, aces and threes, and a low. Taylor mucked her hand as she dropped down to 200,000.

A few hands later, Taylor would get those chips back against John Hoang

Esther Taylor: {x-}{x-}/{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
John Hoang: {x-}{x-}/{5-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{q-Hearts}

"That was such a good card for me," Taylor said after getting the ace on fifth street. Hoang hesitated before calling Taylor's all-in bet.

Taylor showed {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} for trip aces. Hoang had a flush draw with {7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts} but picked up the {k-Spades} on seventh to send over a double up.
