Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Jaka Busts a Short Stack

Faraz Jaka started the action by raising in early position to 650. It folded around to a player in middle position, who shoved all in for 2,550, and it folded back around to Jaka, who quickly made the call.

Jaka: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

The dealer fanned out an action packed flop of {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Jaka flopped trips, but his opponent picked up the nut flush draw. The turn came the {q-Diamonds}, and Jaka still needed to dodge a heart to win the pot. The river came the {a-Spades}, and Jaka collected the pot, upping his stack to 16,000 just before the dinner break.
