Jaka Avoids Trap

• Level 5: 150-300, 25 ante

A player opened to 1,125 in early position, Faraz Jaka called on the button, and the flop fell {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. The player continued for 1,200, and Jaka quickly called.

Both players checked on the turn ({2-Spades}), and the river ({6-Spades}). Jaka's opponent unhappily turned over {9-Spades}{4-Spades} after Jaka checked behind on the river - apparently he was setting a trap. Jaka avoided the trap however, and commands a very strong, 82,000-chip stack.
