Brendan Taylor raised and Brian Brubaker called. Both drew two and Brubaker check-called. Both drew one and Brubaker again check-called. They each drew again but this time checked. Brubaker took it with {10-}{9-}{7-}{5-}{4-}.

A few hands later, Taylor raised and Brubaker made it three bets. Taylor called. Brubaker took two and Taylor three. Brubaker bet, Taylor raised, and they got Taylor's 65,000 in there. Brubaker was pat on both final draws, while Taylor took one, mucked it, and took another.

Brubaker rolled over {9-}{8-}{7-}{5-}{4-}. Taylor had a draw plenty good enough to beat that with {8-}{5-}{4-}{2-}. He peeled his card slightly.

"Three across diamond," he said. "Should be good."

It was the {8-Diamonds} though, pairing him and locking up the tournament for Brubaker.
