Joseph Cheong completed the small blind to 50,000, Jonathan Jaffe raised from the big blind to 150,000, and Cheong called.

The flop came AcJd10c, Cheong checked, Jaffe bet 225,000, and Cheong called.

The turn card was the 5d, Cheong checked, and Jaffe thought for a bit before moving all in for 1,260,000. Cheong asked for an exact count before he called with Ad9c for a pair of aces.

Jaffe turned over Qc2c for a club flush draw with a gutshot straight draw, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

Jaffe needed a king or a club, and he got the best of both worlds when the river brought the Kc. Jaffe won the pot with a club flush to double up in chips.

Jonathan Jaffe  –  3,320,000  (66 bb)
Joseph Cheong  –  4,400,000  (88 bb)

With three players remaining from a field of 93, the average chip stack is about 3.1 million (62 big blinds), and the remaining players are all guaranteed at least $291,730 each.
