Jaffe Wins Lengthy Hand

• Nível 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Jonathan Jaffe and Adam Sherman were part of a three way flop that read {q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{9-Spades}. The first player checked to Jaffe, who fired out 32,000. Sherman folded, and the other player folded to make it a heads up pot. The turn was the {k-Clubs}, and Jaffe checked this time to Sherman, who fired out 65,000. Jaffe tossed in the call, then things got interesting.

The {6-Clubs} came on the river, and Jaffe thought it over for about a minute before suddenly announcing all in. The pot had about 275,000 and each player was sitting on 500,000 so it was quite an overbet. Sherman immediately rolled his eyes when he heard the bet, and he went deep, deep into the tank. He thought it over for at least six minutes, talking to himself about what Jaffe could have most of the time. All the while, Jaffe sat still without moving a muscle. It hardly looked like he was even breathing he was so still, and Sherman was unable to get a read on him. He continued to talk the hand through, when someone at the table finally called a clock.

As soon as the floor came over, Jaffe suddenly stood up to stretch his legs out and crack his neck. He then sat back down and assumed the same pose, and Sherman, who looked like he was ready to fold two or three time already, finally flicked his cards to the dealer.

The table urged Jaffe to show the bluff. Jaffe smiled, mucked his hand, and said "If I had a bluff I'd show you." A couple players at the table seemed to think that was a bluff, but Jaffe just took in the chips, upping his stack to 830,000.
