Jeff Sarwer has just had aces cracked and is on the verge of elimination here in Prague.
Just before the break, Ramzi Jelassi opened to 40,000 in the hijack, the cutoff folded and Mikhail Petrov three-bet on the button to 87,000. Jose Manuel Nadal Sordo folded his small blind but Sarwer stuck in a four-bet to 176,000. Jelassi quickly released his hand, but Petrov took a little longer before deciding to call.
The dealer spread the flop and Sarwer lead out for 180,000. After a brief pause, Petrov raised to what looked like 400,000 but we did not get the chance to count the yellow T25,000 chips because Sarwar moved all in and Petrov snap-called.
"Oh come on!" bellowed a very disappointed Sarwer.
The turn was the and the river was the and Sarwer was left with just 140,000.
Sarwer has had his aces beaten whilst deep in EPT main events at east four or five times, such a sick game sometimes!
