A player got it all in from middle position for 34,000 with Ac4c, but needed to improve to stay alive against the AsJs of Jonathan Jaffe in the big blind.

The board came Ah5c4h5s9s, and the short stack flopped two pair, but his fours got counterfeited when the board paired fives on the turn. Jaffe won the pot with two pair, aces and fives with a jack kicker, to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.
