First Pot for Wright

Douglas Tascarella opened in early position to 700. James Taylor and the winner of Event #50: $600 No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha, Darrin Wright called from the blinds.

The flop came     and Taylor checked to Wright who bet 300. Both Tascarella and Taylor called and action checked through on the   turn.

Taylor checked the   river before Wright bet 1,600 which was enough to get a fold from both of his opponents.
