Outcome

Preflop, with the blinds at 3,000 and 6,000 and a 500 ante, Leon Tsoukernik raised to 18,000 from under the gun, Jaffe reraised to 50,000 from the button, Lichtenberger reraised to 112,000 from the big blind, Tsoukernik folded, Jaffe went all-in, and Lichtenberger called and was all-in.

Analysis

With this tone deaf five-bet Jaffe did his very best to gift 62% of his stack to the talented player to his left. When Lichtenberger woke up with a cold four-bet for 25% of his stack out of the small blind, after having invested only 3,000 from posting, few players would mistake this for a “move.” Jaffe seemed more interested in reiterating his story than in interpreting the situation, taking umbrage at the red flag while attempting to force a fold where there would be none. What sorts of hands would Lichtenberger raise/fold with here after four betting 25% of his stack? Lichtenberger was in good shape for the double up but the flop was an outright disaster as Jaffe caught top pair with an inside straight draw. Lichtenberger’s sweat would be short lived as Jaffe turned trips and left Lichtenberger with nothing but a very expensive bad beat story.
