Mike Watson - 2nd Place

Hand #99: Mike Watson limped the button, Jared Jaffee raised to 180,000 in the big blind and Watson reraised all in for about 1.6 million. Jaffee took a deep breath and sighed before he announced a call.

Watson: {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Jaffee: {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

"ACE!!!!!!" yelled Jaffee's rail as everyone stood up in anticipation for what was to come.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, keeping Watson well in front with his pair of jacks. Short of an ace, the {7-Clubs} turn was as good as it gets for Jaffee as it gave him a flush draw and an open-ended straight draw. The {4-Hearts} river gave Jaffee an eight-high straight to lock up the victory, ending Watson's run in second place.
