Paur Gets Caught

• Nivå 6: 250-500, 50 ante

Taylor Paur, who won his first bracelet earlier this year in one of the most bizarre heads up matches we have ever seen, came into the day with 70,000 even, and it didn't take him long to put those chips to work.

We caught up with the action on the flop, which showed {6-Spades}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Paur's opponent fired out 5,600, and Paur made the call on the button. Both players knuckled when the {7-Clubs} hit the turn, and the {j-Clubs} fell on the river. It was checked to Paur again, and he went deep into the tank. For about three minutes, he stared back and forth between the board and the pot, before he eventually grabbed chips. He toss 13,200 in the middle, and his opponent thought it over for a minute before calling.

Paur showed {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for a busted straight draw, and his opponent showed a better ace high, {a-Spades}{10-Hearts} to take down the pot. Despite taking that hit, Paur is still up on the day, as he is sitting on 73,000.
