Share this

Jonathan Taylor won the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, Event #14 to scoop $454,424 in first-place prize money — and a bracelet. The 31-year-old tournament grinder played the WSOP for the first time but has three rings he won on the WSOP Circuit over the past year to go along with his new bracelet.

Event #14 took three days to come to an end and Taylor survived a field of 1,819 players to take home his first career WSOP cash.

“Coming into this event, all I pretty much wanted to do was to cash,” Taylor said after besting Blake Bohn heads-up for the title. “I just wanted to say I had my first WSOP breakthrough.”

Hand #142 was destined to be the last hand of heads-up between Jonathan Taylor and Blake Bohn. Bohn raised to 200,000 on the button, Taylor went all-in for around 1.5 million, and Bohn called.

Taylor: {k-Spades}{9-Spades}
Bohn: {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The rail began calling for cards and the dealer put up the {5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. Taylor had a gut-shot straight draw. The {9-Hearts} hit the turn and he picked up the lead while his rail went into a frenzy with appreciation. When the {3-Diamonds} hit on the river, it was all over but the shouting...literally. Taylor shook Bohn's hand and was ready to celebrate with his friend.

But not before Kristy Arnett had a chance to talk to him:
