Jonathan Jaffe raised under the gun to 50,000, Joseph Cheong reraised from the small blind to 190,000, and Jaffe called.

The flop came 10c4h3h, Cheong bet 175,000, Jaffe moved all in for 800,000, and Cheong called with QhQc.

Jaffe turned over 5s5c, and he was drawing thin to stay alive.

The turn card was — the 5d!

Jaffe spiked a five on the turn to take the lead with a set of fives, and the river card paired the board the 10s. Jaffe won the pot with a full house to double up in chips.

Jonathan Jaffe  –  2,045,000  (82 bb)
