Jacks Comes Through for Mader

mnuwwarah • Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Phil Mader

Phil Mader lost a big chunk of his stack earlier in a flip with ace-king against jacks, but this time, the jacks were lucky for him.

He shoved for 439,000 on the button over a cutoff jam by Carter Myers for slightly less, and big blind Renato Spahiu woke up with a quick call, showing {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}. Mader had {j-Spades}{j-Hearts} and Myers had {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}.

The {9-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs} board sent Spahiu from winner to last place, and the {6-Diamonds} and {5-Hearts} were blanks on the turn and river.
