Hands #71-75: Jaffee and the Cookie Jar

• Level 30: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Jared Jaffee was not pleased when Mike Watson looked him up on the river

Hand #71: Mike Watson opened to 125,000 and Jared Jaffee flatted. The flop came down {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Spades} and both players tapped the table to bring the {7-Clubs} to the board on the turn. Jaffee then check-folded to Watson's 150,000 wager.

Hand #72: Watson went for a walk in the big blind.

Hand #73: Watson opened for 125,000, Jaffee flatted, and the flop fell {10-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{2-Spades}. Jaffee checked to Watson, who obliged with a bet of 130,000, but Jaffee popped it to 290,000 to force the fold.

Hand #74: Jaffee opened to 125,000, Watson flatted, and the two saw the flop come down {9-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Watson then check-called a bet of 165,000 to peel the {q-Diamonds} on the turn. Watson checked a second time and then called when Jaffee continued for 320,000. On the {4-Diamonds} river Watson checked for a third time, and then looked Jaffee up after the latter fired away for 610,000.

Watson: {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Jaffee: {2-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

Watson's turned two pair was the winner and Jaffee's bottom pair bluff was busted.
