Cardrunners offering a Piece of Taylor

Taylor Caby

He may not be Phil Ivey, but CardRunners is giving away a piece of poker pro Taylor Caby in the upcoming Full Tilt Poker Million final table.

The Piece of Taylor promotion will award 1% of the Full Tilt pro's earnings at the final table to one lucky player who registers for CardRunners' Truly Free Poker Training.

"When Full Tilt did the Piece of Ivey I thought it was a really cool promotion," explained Caby. "I actually wanted to play but as a red pro I was ineligible. We thought this would be a good time to run that kind of promotion again."

Caby will be competing against Luke "FullFlush" Schwartz, Dag Mikkelsen, Juha Helppi, Peter Vasilou, James Akenhead and an online qualifier at the final table Dec. 4 with a first-place prize of $500,000 on the line.

"I've played with Juha Helppi and some of the other guys and I know about FullFlush so I feel pretty good," he said. "It's a shallow structure, but at least there are no antes in the beginning."

Even if Caby busts first, the promotion winner will receive $500, but if CardRunners' instructor takes it down, the prize will swell to $5,000.

When asked if he was feeling any extra pressure over the Piece of Taylor promotion, Caby was quick to dismiss the notion.

"I don't think so," he laughed. "This is by far my biggest live tournament cash, so I'm probably putting more pressure on myself just to perform well. I'd really like to ship some money to a CardRunners player though."

Caby, who built a reputation online with the username Green Plastic, started playing poker professionally in 2003 and quickly progressed from a Sit & Go tournaments to high stakes cash games.

In 2005, Caby, along with fellow poker pro Andrew Wiggins, founded the poker training site CardRunners, which now has over 9,000 monthly subscribers.
