Event 18: Smith Cracks Aces; Final 10 Players Reached

Level 22
Blinds 6000/12000/2000
Players Remaining: 13


Aaron Smith is no stranger to final tables. Smith has over $275,000 in lifetime earnings including two titles here at Foxwoods. Smith has been grinding a short stack for the last level or so but has been picking his spots carefully and chipping up.

In the last hand Smith found himself all in and in bad shape when his [Kh][Kc] was up against the [Ad][Ah] of his opponent.
The dealer spread out the flop and sure enough the [Kd] was right in the window followed by the [5d][Jc].
The [10d] on the turn would provide his opponent with more outs to knock out Smith but the [Js] river would lock up the pot for Smith.

Smith now sits with 430,000 as we redraw for the final table of 10 and will post final table chip counts once the players are done drawing their seats.

Play will end for the night once we hit 9 players.

Players Remaining: 14

Mount Jaffe
Jonathan Jaffe opened the action with a raise to 23,000 from middle position and was quickly three-bet by the small blind to 55,000. Not to be deterred, Jaffe put in a four-bet to 135,000 and the small blind elected to just call.
The dealer spread the [6d][22][10c] flop and the small blind checked his option to Jaffe.
"92,000" Jaffe announced as he cut chips out of the mountain of chips he had in front of himself.
The small blind announced all in before Jaffe's chips even crossed the bet line and Jaffe snap called.
Small Blind: [Ac][Qs]
Jaffe: [Qh][Qc]

The board ran out [4d][3c] and Jaffe would scoop another big pot as he now sits on over 2,400,000 chips.
