Tim Reilly is All In
Tim Reilly makes it very clear that he has moved all in.

Tim Reilly moved all in under the gun for about 350,000, and Randall Fernandez called from the button with AhQd.

Reilly turned over JsJc, and he needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Qc10h8d10s8s — Fernandez paired his queen on the flop, while Reilly picked up a gutshot straight draw. But Reilly missed his outs, and Fernandez won the pot with a higher two pair, queens and tens, to eliminate Reilly in sixth place.

According to Tim Reilly’s bio sheet, he is “Over 21” years old, his occupation is “Full Time Hero,” and his greatest poker accomplishment is that he “Beat Matt Stout in a hand once.”

Reilly could have fun with his bio sheet because we already know him very well, as he has more than $1.7 million in live tournament earnings in his career. One of the biggest scores of his career was here at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where he finished fifth in the 2016 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown to earn $164,113.
