WPT: Jonathan Little Wins the 2008 Foxwoods World Poker Finals
Jonathan Jaffe Finishes Runner-Up
It took hours longer than anybody could have imagined, but the mounting blinds and antes finally put an end to a marathon heads-up session that saw numerous lead changes, huge hands, and even bigger bluffs. When all was said and done, Jonathan Little bested Jonathan Jaffe for his second WPT title and nearly $1.2 million.
Here were the chip counts heading into the final table:
Seat 1: David Pham — 2,038,000
Seat 2: Jonathan Jaffe — 4,131,000
Seat 3: Jonathan Little — 2,021,000
Seat 4: Charles Marchese — 1,718,000
Seat 5: Jack Schanbacher — 1,592,000
Seat 6: Mike Matusow — 816,000
Here's how all of the action went according to CardPlayer.com's live updates page:
Jonathan Little raised under the gun to 125,000. Mike Matusow then moved all in for 900,000 from the button. Little made the call and showed pocket nines and once again Matusow was racing with A J.
The board came K 5 3 5 4, and Matusow was eliminated in sixth place, earning $124,048. After the hand, Little's stack was boosted to 3.765 million.
Jack Schanbacher moved all in for his last 800,000, and David Pham called from the cutoff. The action moved to Jonathan Little in the small blind, who raised to 1.5 million, putting Pham's last 600,000 all in.
Pham tanked for bit before folding pocket tens, and Little showed Q Q. Schanbacher was way behind with 9 8, and the board came J 6 5 6 8 to send him to the rail in fifth place, good for $182,196.
After the hand, Little took the chip lead with 5.825 million. Pham was extremely short-stacked with 595,000.
Charles Marchese Doubles Up
Jonathan Jaffe raised to 140,000, and Charles Marchese moved all in from the small blind for his last 785,000. Jaffe made the call with pocket fives, but was in trouble to Marchese and his pocket sixes.
