Jonathan Jaffe Doubles to Almost Three Million

Jonathan Jaffe

Jonathan Jaffe raised to 45,000 from under the gun +1. Yi Fang, who had literally just sat down for his first hand at the Mothership, reraised to 70,000 from the hijack. It folded back to Jaffe, and he thought for a while before reraising to 240,000. Fang tossed in the call, and the flop came {q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. Jaffe led right out for 300,000, and Fang quickly moved all in. Jaffe called even quicker, and in a flash, the pot had ballooned to over 2.8 million.

Jaffe: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Fang: {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

Fang stood up and immediately started chanting for a queen. A ten would also have done it for him against Jaffe's overpair, and while he didn't hit either on the turn, he did pick up a few more outs with the {J-Diamonds}. Fang started chanting "Queen, ten, nine. Queen, ten, nine!" Jaffe couldn't help but laugh despite the tension of the moment, and said "I hope that if I bust that you win the tournament." The 2.8 million chip river card was the {5-Hearts}, and Jaffe scored a massive double up, while Fang tumbled down to just 504,000.
