After a flop of Jd10c5h, Taylor Wilson checked the big blind, James Carroll bet 100,000 from under the gun, and Wilson thought for a while before he check-raised all in for 490,000.

Carroll quickly called with AsAc, and Wilson turned over Kc10s for a pair of tens. Wilson needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Qc, the river card was the Ad, and the set on the river was not what Carroll wanted, because Wilson caught a runner-runner ace-high straight to win the pot and double up in chips.

After the hand, somebody congratulated Wilson on the double-up.

Wilson smiled and replied, “I’m sure everyone was rooting for me.”

Taylor Wilson  –  1,310,000  (22 bb)
