Sfez Takes from Jaka

Level 21 : 10,000/20,000, 3,000 ante

It looked like there would only be one hand played in Level 20, but with 15 seconds left on the clock, the dealer starting pitching another hand.

In it, Faraz Jaka opened to 34,000 on the button. Eric Sfez defended his big blind, and the flop fell {2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{j-Spades}. Sfez checked, Jaka continued for 28,000, and Sfez called.

The turn was a repeat deuce - the {2-Hearts} - and Sfez opted to lead out, betting 35,000. Jaka tank-called.

The {7-Clubs} completed the board, Sfez led out for 81,000, and Jaka released.
