Dan Martin

In the last hand before the dinner break, preflop action created a pot of a million with the first three cards reading Kd9d9c. Justin Datloff then bet 400,000 from the hijack, Jonathan Jaffe called on the button, and Dan Martin check-raised to 2.4 million from the big blind.

Datloff folded before Jaffe thought for a while before he reraised all in, and Martin called for the last of his chips for 3.5 million in all. The two players then flipped over their cards.

Martin: Jc9h
Jaffe: AsKs
