High Roller

Professional Acting

• Nivo 12: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante
Faraz Jaka

Faraz Jaka and Eric Sfez were heads up on a queen-high board with two fives and two clubs. Jaka was faced with a 27,000-chip bet, and went into the tank.

"Show one if you fold?" Jaka asked.

"Yes," Sfez agreed. "I can show one."

There were a few seconds of silence.

"You have seven-five?" Sfez asked. "I'll show one."

Jaka tanked for a little longer, laughed, then called, ripping over {q-}{9-}. The player unhappily mucked his hand.

"You promised you'd show," Jaka needled. "Are you a professional actor?"

The very next hand, Sfez opened to 5,000 on middle position, and Jaka three-bet to 14,100 from the small blind.

"That's what you get for lying," Jaka said.

Sfez called, and the dealer fanned {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Jaka led out for 12,000, Sfez called, and the turn brought the {q-Clubs}. Jaka checked, Sfez tanked for two minutes then fired 26,200, and Jaka snap-called.

The river was the {2-Spades}, Jaka checked again, and after a very long time, Sfez checked behind. Jaka would reveal his cards until either Sfez tabled his cards or mucked them, and eventually he showed ten-high. Jaka flipped over {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}.

"Professional actor!" both Kevin MacPhee and Jason Lavallee said mockingly after the hand.
