Event #25: $5,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Ball Doubles Into the Lead

ajlamers • Level 31: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante
Scott Ball

Scott Ball raised to 500,000 on the button and Jonathan Jaffe announced all in from the big blind. Ball called off his stack of 5,875,000 and was at risk.

Scott Ball: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Jonathan Jaffe: {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

Ball was in a dominating position but the flop of {6-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs} gave Jaffe a straight draw. The {6-Spades} on the turn provided some chop outs but the {9-Spades} on the river bricked out and Ball scored the double up.
