No-Limit Hold'em

Just one hand after gambling for it all and doubling up, Esther Taylor moved all in again. Sandeep Pulusani made the call and the two were racing.

Esther Taylor: {q-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Sandeep Pulusani: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

Pulusani was in good shape with his pocket pair and Taylor only having one over card. The {8-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop didn't change too much. The {10-Spades} on the turn gave both players a straight draw. Taylor needed a nine while Pulusani needed a queen. The {q-Hearts} hit on the river. Taylor initially celebrated thinking her top pair was good, but Pulusani was quick to point out that he had made his straight. Taylor was eliminated as the runner up, while Pulusani took home the hardware.
