Jaka Gives Some Back

Bernstein finds his double

Under the gun, Faraz Jaka raised to 235,000, and David Bernstein shoved all in on him for 1.18 million. Jaka made the call with {9-Spades} {9-Hearts}, and he was flipping for the knockout as Bernstein rolled over {A-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}.

But Bernstein's horse ran faster, and the {Q-Diamonds} {7-Spades} {3-Clubs} {J-Diamonds} {6-Clubs} board gave him the winning pair of queens. Just after notching a double of his own, Jaka grants one to Bernstein, and the latter is back up to 2.56 million. Jaka's back down to 4.1 million — essentially where he began the day.

Chip stacks
Faraz Jaka us 4,100,000 -1,300,000
David Bernstein ca 2,560,000 1,180,000
