Jaka Busts Chino...Then Another

[user139916]

We had a feeling there would be fireworks when Chino Rheem was moved to the direct left of Faraz Jaka. Less than two levels later, Rheem is out and Jaka has a ton of chips, more than double the amount of second place.

As told to us by Jaka before the break, he raised preflop and found two callers, one being Chino. A {K-Spades}{J-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop came down and he made a continuation bet that chased away the mystery player, but Rheem came along to see the {4-Diamonds} turn. Jaka fired a big bet and Chino again called, landing the {A-Diamonds} river. Another bet from Jaka, this time 100,000, was called by Rheem who mucked when Jaka showed {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}.

Not long after, Chino shoved for about 15,000 under the gun and Jaka called from the big blind with {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}. Chino was crushed with {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and was unable to survive the {A-Spades}{J-Spades}{2-Spades}{K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} board.

The following hand, the player in the cutoff opened and Jaka three bet from the small blind. The cutoff called and a {10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop came down. Jaka bet a small 2,000, his opponent called, and the {A-Diamonds} hit the turn. The chips went in there and Jaka tabled {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} for a set. His opponent was drawing dead with ace-queen, giving his chips to Jaka.
