Jonathan Jaffe Gets Lucky to Crack Isaac Haxton's Pocket Kings

Chad_Holloway • Level 6: 300-600, 100 ante
Jonathan Jaffe

Just before the break, Jonathan Jaffe raised to 1,500 under the gun and Kevin Eyster called from the hijack. Connor Drinan then three-bet to 5,600 from the cutoff, and right behind him Isaac Haxton four-bet to 13,600 from the button.

Both blinds folded, and Jaffe thought for a bit before announcing himself all in for 40,000 even. Both Eyster and Drinan folded, and Haxton snap-called.

Haxton: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Jaffe: {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

Jaffe was in trouble, though he did manage to pick up a gutshot on the {j-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{q-Spades} flop. The {8-Hearts} turn meant a nine would also win it for him, but it was the {A-Hearts} on the river that would save him. Haxton was left with less than 5,000 after the hand.
