Kruk Takes a Commanding Lead

ajlamers • Level 24: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Christopher Kruk raised to 125,000 on the button and Jonathan Jaffe called. The flop came {k-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and Jaffe check-called a bet of 200,000 from Kruk.

The {10-Spades} peeled off on the turn and Jaffe led out for 450,000. Kruk made the call and the {6-Diamonds} completed the board. Jaffe announced a bet of 1.9 million and Kruk was thrown back in his seat. With only 30 seconds to act, he needed to make a big decision for a monstrous pot. Kruk tossed in a single chip and Jaffe rapped the table. He turned over {a-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a missed flush draw and Kruk held {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for top pair.

Jaffe was left with just under 500,000 and Kruk has taken a commanding chip lead.
