Event #32: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Jessee Plays the Jack-Nine to Perfection

GeoffFisk • Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

Albert Halfon raised to 18,000 on the small blind, and got a call from Dennis Jessee in the big blind.

Halfon fired a 30,000-chip continuation bet on the {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop, and Jessee called. The turn came {k-Spades}, and Halfon slowed down with a check. Jessee bet 25,000 and Halfon called, bringing the {6-Hearts} on the river. The action checked through and Jessee showed {j-Spades}{9-Spades} for the king-high straight, beating out Halfon's {j-Hearts}{10-Spades}.
