Brendan Taylor is cruising with more than half the chips in play and just eliminated Max Kruse in fourth place.

Taylor opened with a raise, which he has done seemingly every hand since the final table began, and Max Kruse three-bet from the big blind. Taylor called.

Kruse drew one and Taylor drew three. Kruse bet his last 10,000 and Taylor called.

Kruse drew one again and Taylor drew three.

"I have a chance," said Kruse.

On the final draw, both players drew one.

Kruse laid out {8-}{7-}{5-}{2-} and Taylor showed {8-}{6-}{4-}{2-}, each awaiting their final draw.

Taylor turned his over first, completing his hand with a nine: {9-}{8-}{6-}{4-}{2-}.

Kruse peeled his card and eventually showed a nine as well, giving him {9-}{8-}{7-}{5-}{2-} and sending him home in fourth place.
