He Owed Him One

Faraz Jaka loves the Dough

A little while after folding a pot away to Jorge Vergara's preflop shove, Faraz Jaka tangled with him again in a recent hand, and this time he was the one left to show a single hole card.

In their previous confrontation Vergara offered to show one half of his hand, and Jaka obliged by turning over the {q-Clubs}.

This time, the two played with a flop of {j-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} already on board, and about 4,500 already in the pot. Jaka was acting from under the gun and he fired out a bet of 1,500, causing Vergara to wince and begin to count down his stack.

"Man..." he said aloud in Jaka's direction. "You flop a baby set or something?"

Finally, Vergara decided that discretion was the better part of valor, and his cards were slid toward the dealer, but while he did so Vergara asked for the favor to be returned.

"Show?" he asked Jaka from across the table. "You owe me one."

Jaka obliged after hearing Vergara's reasoning, and with a sinner's smile spreading on his face, "The Toilet" flicked the {k-Hearts} face up near the flop.

"Really?" asked Vergara when he saw the sight of a non-paired card. "I folded ace-jack."
