Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Jaffe McDoubles Through McLean


McLean Karr raised to 36,000 from the cutoff and Jonathan Jaffe made the call from the big blind. Jaffe then checked the {7-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop, Karr bet 32,000, and Jaffe check-raised to 80,000. Karr thought a moment before putting in a three-bet and Jaffe called all in for a total of 270,000.

Karr: {Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}
Jaffe: {K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Jaffe had made a big call to catch Karr in a bluff, but he still needed to dodge the two overs. He did so when the {6-Hearts} hit the turn, leaving just the river. As fate would have it, the {K-Spades} rolled off and allowed Jaffe to double through Karr.
