Jared Jaffee Claims Event #58: $1,500 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Jared Jaffee Event #58 WSOP 2014
Share this

Event #58: $1,500 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em found 1,475 runners at the starting gate but longtime pro Jared Jaffee took home his first World Series of Poker bracelet in this event! Jaffee had 11 cashes at the Rio since 2009 but this bracelet was truly pure gold for him. Jaffee also has a World Poker Tour Jacksonville bestbet Fall Poker Scramble $3,500 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event in his impressive resume that he won in November of last year — he's now one step closer to capturing poker's "Triple Crown" — a European Poker Tour win will bring home the "Crown."

The first full day of play in the mixed-max format was nine-handed and the field was carved down to 181 when chips were bagged and tagged for the night. Day 2 brought back the players for a six-handed run of short-handed poker — late in the day the final 24 players were set to play at four-handed tables. Then 10 remained.

Jaffee took out Brandon Cantu to claim nearly half the chips in play and shoot Jaffee into the final four heads-up matches. Then Jaffee took out Joseph Alban and was off to fight it out with fellow pro Mike Watson. They were both looking for their first gold bracelet.

Hand #99: Mike Watson limped the button, Jared Jaffee raised to 180,000 from the big blind, and Watson raised all-in for about 1.6 million. Jaffee did a moment of thinking before announcing a call.

Watson: {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Jaffee: {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

"ACE!!!!!!" Jaffee's rail yelled for an Ace.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. The {7-Clubs} turn gave Jaffee a flush draw and an open-ended straight draw. The {4-Hearts} river was all Jaffee needed. He rivered a straight and his first WSOP gold bracelet!

Congratulations Jared!
