Brad Garrett has just been sent to the rail by Anders Taylor after being crippled by Tom Macey as we approach the halfway mark of the final level on Day 1.
Earlier, the action folded to Macey who raised from late position; Garrett called from the blinds, so it was heads-up to the flop of . Garrett checked, Macey bet 4,000 and Garrett check-raised to 12,000 before Macey announced he was all-in. Garrett snap-called.
Needing one of 16 outs, neither the on the turn or the river were what Garrett was looking for. Over the next few hands, Garrett pushed all-in and stole a few blinds and antes, but then in his final hand, he pushed all-in for 11,100 after a button raise preflop to 2,000. Taylor called from the small blind and the button got out of the way before the cards were tabled:
Although Garrett wasn't shown the love today from the cards, he definitely earned the respect of his fellow players, who all got up and shook hands with him before he took his leave. Well played, sir!
Macey is now up to 85,500 while Taylor is now on 92,500.
