Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Sweet or Sarwer

• Level 6: 250-500, 50 ante

Chess prodigy Jeff Sarwer who has dressed today as if he came straight from Mardi Gras (or maybe he's going straight to Mardi Gras at the end of the day or when he busts? - Who knows, but that bright green t-shirt really hurts my eyes).

Anyway, Sarwer had bet 3,875 on a {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} board against the button, only to be raised to 11,000. Sarwer had responded by moving all in for around 30,000. Sarwer then got out a plastic ring from his bag which he claimed was 'powerful' and it did look as though it may have once belonged to one of the Wonder Twin. Sarwer though stated he bought it from a street vendor in Barcelona.

"It's meant to flash," laughed Sarwer as he attempted to harness the ring's power into willing his opponent to make the wrong choice. It seemed as though it wasn't working (new batteries needed?) and Sarwer instead made an offer to show his opponent one card if the latter folded. This was a much more preferable deal for the button, who folded and Sarwer showed him the {4-Clubs} as a result.
