Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Stern's Elimination Brings Us to the Bubble


Dani Stern raised to 16,000 from middle position and received a single call in the form of Jonathan Jaffe in the big blind. Both players proceeded to get all the money in on the {J-Spades}{3-Spades}{A-Hearts} flop and it became obvious why when the cards were turned up:

Jaffe: {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Stern: {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}

Jaffe had flopped bottom set while Stern had top-two pair. While behind, Stern could still catch an ace or jack on the river to steal the pot. The {4-Hearts} turn was no help and neither was the {9-Spades} river. Stern was eliminated in 29th place, just two shy of the money.
