Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Sarwer Takes Some Off Stein

• Level 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Sam Stein opened from the cutoff with a raise to 11,000. Jeff Sarwer calls from the small blind and they see a flop heads up.

When the board rolls off {7-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} both players check and the {10-Diamonds} hits the turn. Sarwer checked again and Stein bet 8,500. Sarwer then made a check-raise to 21,500. Stein decided to make the call and the two players saw the {2-Diamonds} hit the river. Sarwer led the river for 33,000 and Stein snap-called.

Sarwer quickly turned over {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for the nut straight and Stein angrily mucked. Stein lost over half his chips in that pot and is now down to 55,000 while Sarwer, who had been giving some of his chips back to his table as of late, reshifted the momentum with this hand and stacks up 440,000 chips.
