Off to the Races: Jaka vs. Kurganov

Chad_Holloway • Level 6: 300-600, 75 ante

Igor Kurganov opened for 1,400 from the hijack only to have Nicolas Yunis three-bet to 3,100 from the cutoff. When action reached Faraz Jaka in the big blind, he put in a four-bet to 7,200, and Kurganov asked how much he was playing before moving all in. Yunis got out of the way and Jaka snap-called off for 35,800.

Kurganov: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Jaka: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

It was a classic flip, and Jaka was looking to hold to stay alive. That's just what he did after the board ran out a lowly {4-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{7-Spades}{8-Spades}. Kurganov was left with just 4,700 after the hand.
