Jacks Beat Pollak

Over in the far corner of the Orange Section here in the Amazon Room, Nikolas Metaxas was all in against Kevin Pollak, with Pollak deep in the tank.

"I know i have to call," said Pollak, having already committed 4,000 to the pot as Metaxas was all in for just under 14,000. However, Pollak didn't call just yet, instead he kept thinking. Eventually he did flick out enough chips to call.

Pollak: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Metaxas: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

The {j-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop was a good one for Mataxas, but it gave Pollak outs to the straight. Pollak called for a queen, but the {7-Clubs} turn and the {4-Hearts} river weren't what he was looking for.

Pollak was in good spirits as Mataxas apologized for winning the hand. Mataxas then piped up, saying, "And to think, i won this seat for $65."
