Jared Jaffee

Jared Jaffee started heads-up play as the short stack, on just the second hand he found himself all in and with a caller in Brandon Adams. The players turned over their hands and Jaffee would be at risk of elimination.

Brandon Adams: {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Jared Jaffee: {k-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The dealer fanned out a flop of {4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, not improving Jaffee's hand as he would need to connect to stay alive. A {7-Spades} fell on the turn, giving Jaffee more outs to double up.

The {2-Diamonds} hit the felt on the river, missing Jaffee's hand completely and giving Adams the pot, eliminating Jaffee from the tournament and taking down the tournament.
