Jaffe's Nut Straight Propels Him to 3rd Round

Nivel 10 : 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Masaaki Kagawa limped in for 3,000 and Jonathan Jaffe checked his option, bringing a rainbow flop of {4-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Spades}. Jaffe led out for 5,200 chips and Kagawa made the call. The turn card was the {8-Clubs} and from there the action progressed rapidly. Jaffe led out once again for 16,000 and Kagawa raised to 50,000. Jaffe decided to three-bet it to 84,000 and Kagawa four-bet for his remaining 10,000 chips. Kagawa revealed the {K-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for a turned straight, but Jaffe's {9-Clubs}{7-Spades} gave him the nuts and a 2nd round victory.
