Jonathan Jaffe

With roughly 60,000 in the pot and the board reading 9h8d2sJc, the player in the big blind bet 55,000 and Jonathan Jaffe called in middle position.

The river was the 8s, the big blind went all in for about 87,000, and Jaffe called instantly with Ts7s for a jack-high straight, besting his opponent’s KdKs to score the elimination.
