Bakersfield resident Tom Taylor outlasted 506 other competitors to claim first place and more than $20,000 in the 2013 Central Coast Fall Poker Classic at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez. Taylor, 69, persevered through 12 hours of no-limit Texas Hold'em action and won a heads-up showdown with Jorge Vera, 25, of Santa Barbara to win the tournament. "I guess I showed those young guys that I can still do it," said Taylor, who walked away with $20,280. "It was tough. I was hanging on by the skin of my teeth there for a while, and those young guys will run you over if you let them. I was just about down and out. I had to start shoving all-in (with about 100 players remaining). And I was down again at the final table, but I was able to hit a couple of big hands, double up a few times and take the lead."
