Jaka Loses One, But Still Leads

[user68268] • Level 7: 300-600, 75 ante

Faraz Jaka is three handed at his table and has the chip lead, but recently dropped a pot.

After the button raised to 1,200, Jaka called from the big blind and then led out for 1,900 on the {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} flop. His opponent called. The turn was checked by both players when the {9-Clubs} fell, and they also checked the {3-Diamonds} river card.

Jaka tabled the {Q-Hearts}{9-Spades} for a pair of nines, but it was no good against his opponent's {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}.
