Sarwer Sends One Home

We caught up with the action on a {A-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} flop, where Jeff Sarwer led out for 1,825. His lone opponent in the small blind raised to 4,625 and Sarwer re-raised all-in so quickly he almost beat his opponent into the pot. His opponent tanked and began putting Sarwer on a range of hands.

"Flush draw....ace-king, ace-queen?" he said.

"Probably worse than that, but you can't call," Sarwer replied.

...Sarwer's opponent called off his remaining stack anyways and saw that he was in terrible shape.

Sarwer: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for top pair and the nut flush draw.
Opponent: {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for an inferior flush draw.

The {4-Spades} turn left Sarwer's opponent drawing dead. A meaningless {5-Diamonds} landed the river and the chess prodigy chipped up to 68,000.

Chip Counts
