Event #40: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Jaka Gaining the Upper Hand

• Taso 1: 100-200, 0 ante

In a three-bet pot, Faraz Jaka bet 1,400 and was called by Cary Katz on a {q-Spades}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop. Both players then checked the {a-Diamonds} turn, and Jaka bet 2,400 on the {a-Clubs} river. Katz quickly folded, commenting that Jaka was "certainly expecting a call."

A few hands later, Jaka raised a Katz river bet to 5,200 with the board reading {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. Katz called, and Jaka showed {9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} for a straight, leaving Katz shaking his head.
