On the button, Kyle Julius found and stuck out a raise to 700,000. Next door, Faraz Jaka was dealt a fairly good hand of his own, the . He decided a reraise was in order, and he stacked up 1.85 million and made that three-bet.
"Pull it in?" Julius asked, and the dealer did so. But he wanted to play for more, and he raised it right back up to 3.095 million to send the decision back to Jaka. After just a couple moments, he five-bet shoved, and Julius snap-called all in for 10.47 million. Jaka knew that he was likely not in good shape, and his dominated hand had him five cards from a crippling blow.
The flop was not at all good for Jaka's chances, and he needed to go runner-runner to avoid doubling Julius. The on the turn left Jaka drawing dead, and the river was meaningless.
That's a monster pot for Julius and the biggest double of his life. It vaults him all the way up over 21 million, and Jaka is left with less than 1.5 million with which to try and mount a comeback.
After the hand, Julius tried to make small talk as he stacked the pot, but Jaka was having none of it.
"I mean, what do you want me to do, man?" he half-snapped. Understandably a bit grumpy, Jaka has his work cut out for him now.
