Jonathan Jaffe

The heads-up match between a WPT Champion (Jonathan Jaffe) and WSOP bracelet winner (Arkadiy Tsinis) played out for a few hands before the two decided to look at numbers for dividing up the remaining prize pool.

It was a quick negotiation and the numbers were adjust based on the counts at the time.

Jonathan Jaffe – 3,035,000 (101 bb)
Arkadiy Tsinis – 1,065,000 (36 bb)

1st: Jonathan Jaffe – $340,285
2nd: Arkadiy Tsinis – $257,207

Jaffe picks up the High Roller title along with a very nice paydsay

Jared Jaffee

Jared Jaffee dropped chips after the break and made a move to double. He shoved for 360,000 from the button, Jonathan Jaffe folded his small blind but Arkadiy Tsinis quickly called in the big.

Tsinis: 7c7d
Jaffee: AcQc

It was a race, Jaffee could not pair on the JcTc9d flop but he picked up a ton of outs with the open-ended straight draw/flush draw. Tsinis made a set on the 7h turn and Jaffee missed all 13 of his outs on the As river to exit in third place.

Arkadiy Tsinis – 1,115,000 (37 bb)
Jared Jaffee – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($146,842)

Jared Jaffee folded his button and Jonathan Jaffe dropped enough 100K chips in the middle from the small blind to put Arkadiy Tsinis all-in. He took a look at his cards and quickly called.

Tsinis: TcTh
Jaffe: 7h4h

Tsinis woke up with a hand in the big blind and his tens held as the board ran Jd8c3hJc6c.

Arkadiy Tsinis – 720,000 (24 bb)
Jonathan Jaffe – 2,350,000 (78 bb)

Late registration and unlimited re-entry are available until the start of Level 7 at 9:30pm and they will continue through Level 12.
