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

Sarwer Pushing Around Chips

• Level 21: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

We missed the hand as it happened, but it sounds like Garrett Adelstein put a bad-beat double-up on Jeff Sarwer. We can surmise that for two reasons. First, Adelstein is up over 300,000 chips, and Sarwer is below 200,000. And secondly, from the table talk during this pot.

It began with Adelstein opening to 22,000, and Sarwer took a long pause to count down his stack before shoving all in. When it folded back around to Adelstein, he gave a long stare. "What?" Sarwer said, grinning. "You know I'm ahead here." Adelstein prodded, and Sarwer kept going. "Of course I'm ahead. 100%. But you can hit a 3%-er on me again. With that, Adelstein folded.

Sarwer played another pot just a moment later, calling a preflop raise to 21,000 from Ben Volpe. Sarwer called another 38,000 after the {J-Hearts} {2-Spades} {K-Hearts} flop, but Volpe bet another 62,000 on the {K-Clubs} turn that finally coaxed a fold. It leaves Sarwer with about 185,000 chips, less than half what he began the day with.
