Schmidt Shove Forces Faraz Fold

Level 2 : 25-50, 0 ante

Preflop action had left just Ryan Schmidt (middle position) and Faraz Jaka (small blind) with cards when the flop came {3-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{J-Clubs}. Jaka bet 375 and Schmidt called. The turn was the {J-Diamonds}, pairing the board, and this time Jaka checked. Schmidt bet 525, and Jaka made the call.

The river brought the {A-Hearts} and another check from Jaka. Schmidt paused, then announced he was all in, putting his stack of 1,825 before him. Jaka tanked for more than a minute, then with a reluctant look tossed his cards away.

Schmidt Jaka has about 5,200 while Schmidt moves up to about 4,000.
