Hand #90: Sean Jazayeri Wins the WPT L.A. Poker Classic! ($1,370,240)
Level 32: 75,000-150,000, 25,000 ante
Sean Jazayeri raises to 400,000, Sands moves all in for 2,560,000, and Jazayeri quickly calls with A5. Sands turns over KQ, and he'll need to improve to stay alive.
The flop comes K105, and both people pair, but Sands takes the lead with a pair of kings.
The turn card is the J, and Sands will double up on any card but a queen or a five.
The river card is -- the 5!
The crowd reacts to the reversal of fortune as Sean Jazayeri wins the pot -- and the tournament -- with trip fives.
David Sands finishes as the runner-up, earning $806,370.
Sean Jazayeri wins the WPT L.A. Poker Classic, earning $1,370,240, which includes a $25,500 entry into the season-ending WPT World Championship in May. He'll also receive a WPT Champions Trophy, and have his name engraved on the one-and-only WPT Champions Cup.
Congratulations to Sean Jazayeri!
