Aaron Stefansky

Scott Heiligman raised from the button, Michael Jagroo called in the small blind and Aaron Stefansky called in the big blind.

The flop was QdThKs and action checked to Heiligman who continued. Jagroo called, Stefansky check-raised to about 1,200,000, Heiligman folded and Jagroo called.

The turn was the Ac, Jagroo checked, Stefansky shoved for effectively 2,700,000 and Jagroo tanked for a little while.

“Was going to call if anything but that,” said Jagroo.

After a little while longer, Jagroo folded.

Stefansky showed 9d7d.

“Your read was on,” said Stefansky, as he collected the pot.

Aaron Stefansky  –  10,900,000  (87 bb)
Michael Jagroo  –  2,700,000  (22 bb)
