YouStake Performance of the Week: Esther Taylor-Brady Having Her Best WSOP Yet

  • Having her best WSOP yet, this week's YouStake Performance of the Week belongs to Esther Taylor-Brady.

This week’s YouStake Performance of the Week goes to Esther Taylor-Brady.

A new feature on PokerNews, the YouStake Performance of the Week will be coming at you each and every week this summer, on Friday, and is designed to highlight great performances on the felt from Las Vegas during the 2016 World Series of Poker.

YouStake.com is a fully integrated sports staking platform that allows the masses to invest in skilled sports players for entry in live events. The company recently made headlines when it acquired the poker staking platform TastyStakes.com.

Taylor-Brady has been around in poker for quite some time, with live tournament results that date back a decade in time, but this is the year she's truly having a WSOP to remember.

Taylor-Brady just recorded her fourth cash of the summer, placing fourth in the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Championship for $107,551. Her run in this one followed 10th- and 11th-place finishes in the $2,500 Omaha Hi-Low and Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low and $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Championship events, respectively, and if it wasn't for a brutal beat to Randy Ohel she very well might be holding the gold bracelet.

On her final hand, Taylor-Brady was all in on fifth street with the ({A-Clubs}{4-Hearts})/{8-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{9-Hearts} against the ({Q-Spades}{J-Clubs})/{K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts} for Ohel. She had a big, big lead on the hand with a backdoor low draw to help her out if needed. She picked up the {5-Diamonds} and {A-Diamonds} to finish with trip aces, but it was Ohel's {A-Hearts} and {10-Clubs} runners that gave him a Broadway straight to send Taylor-Brady to the rail.

Despite the beat, Taylor-Brady was professional and gracious in her exit, sharing the following on social media:

All told, Taylor-Brady has earned $151,109 from her four WSOP cashes this summer. That's the most times she's cashed and the most money she won in a single WSOP, and it's what makes her the latest YouStake Performance of the Week.
