Jake Bazeley

Scott Margereson opened to 40,000 from the cutoff and Jake Bazeley moved all in from the small blind for 439,000. Faraz Jaka reshoved from the big blind and Margereson got out of the way.

It was a classic coin flip as Bazeley turned over 4h4c against Jaka’s AcKh.

Bazeley goes “I’ve been waiting all day for the fake flip”

The flop came Ad5s3s and Jaka flopped an ace to take the lead. The turn was the 4s and Bazeley hit his four to retake the lead.

The river was the 10s and neither player had a spade so Bazeley’s set of fours secured his double.

Jake Bazeley – 949,000 (48 bb)
Faraz Jaka – 2,020,000 (101 bb)
