Esther Taylor

Alexey Rybin raised to 500,000 from the button, and Esther Taylor called from the big blind.

The flop came down {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}, and Taylor bet the pot for 1,100,000. Rybin raised, and Taylor called all in for about 1,660,000 total.

Rybin: {J-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Taylor: {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}

Taylor was in dire straits with a straight draw and backdoor flush draw against Rybin's trips.

The {10-Hearts} turn and {J-Hearts} river completed the board, no help to "E-Tay" to end her run in third place.
