The flop comes 972, Baron bets 1,050,000, and Paur thinks for a bit before he calls.
The turn card is the 3, Baron bets 1,650,000, and Paur thinks for about 30 seconds before he calls.
The river card is the 5, Baron moves all in for 3,025,000, and Paur snap-calls.
Baron shows A9 for a pair of nines, but Paur turns over 109 to win the pot — and the WPT title — with a heart flush.
Isaac Baron finishes as the runner-up, earning $704,200.
Taylor Paur wins the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star, earning $1,214,200, which includes a $15,400 entry into the season-ending WPT World Championship. Paur also receives a WPT Champions Trophy, a pair of gold Monster 24K Headphones, and a Hublot Oceanographic 4000 Watch. Paur’s name will be engraved on the one-and-only WPT Champions Cup, alongside all the previous winners in World Poker Tour history.
