• Level 26: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante
Jared Talarico
Jared Talarico

Through a tournament with so many big names and so much table talk, Jared Talarico may have been the quietest person in the entire field.

He has taken the chip lead here at the final table and seems to have the best of it whenever he puts chips into the pot.

On this hand, JC Tran raised, and Talarico and Yu both called. The flop came {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, and all three players checked. They all checked again when the {9-Hearts} came on the turn. Talarico led the river with the completed board reading {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, and Tran called.

Talarico turned over {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, and Tran mucked.
