Diamonds Get Jaka All Jacked Up

Faraz Jaka

From early position, Faraz Jaka raised to 4,100. He was called by a player in middle position, Shawn Buchanan in the cutoff seat, Chris Klodnicki in the small blind and the player in the big blind to make for a five-way pot.

The quintuplet took the {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop and action checked to the player behind Jaka in middle position. He bet 12,000 and Buchanan folded. Klodnicki and the big blind also kicked them in, but Jaka wanted to raise the stakes a bit. He check-raised to 27,000. After a minute, his opponent reraised all in for about 55,000 and Jaka quickly called. Here's what we saw.

Jaka: {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
Opponent: {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

Jaka's flush draw was up against his opponent's two jacks. The turn brought the {9-Diamonds} to give Jaka a flush, but it paired the board, meaning his opponent could still hit a full house on the river to stay alive. The {10-Hearts} on the river didn't make the full house the all-in player was looking for and Jaka won the pot. He's now up to 530,000 in chips.
