Mitch Garshofsky

Robbi Jade Lew min-raised from middle position to 1,600, the player in the hijack called, Oneil McCalla called from the cutoff, and Mitch Garshofsky reraised from the small blind to 9,400.

Jorge Gomez called from the big blind, and the first three players folded.

The flop came Jd9s5d, Garshofsky bet 13,200, Gomez moved all in for about 85,000, and Garshofsky quickly called all in for 64,300 with JsJh for a set of jacks.

Gomez turned over KhKd, and Garshofsky needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card paired the board with the 9d, the river card was the 3c, and Garshofsky won the pot with a full house, jacks full of nines, to double up in chips.

Mitch Garshofsky  –  153,000  (191 bb)
Jorge Gomez  –  20,000  (25 bb)
