Sion All But Busts Schwartz

YorkshirePud • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Jake Schwartz is down to less than two big blinds after a clash with British high-stakes cash game specialist Elior Sion.

Schwartz opened to 13,000 from the button, Nam Le folded from the small blind, but Elior Sion wasn't going to allow Schwartz to steal his big blind and he promptly made it 32,000 to play. Schwartz confirmed the raise amount before moving all-in. Sion checked his hole cards before making what looked to be a reluctant call.

Sion: {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}
Schwartz: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

Sion's jacks stayed ahead of Schwartz's "Big Slick" on the {5-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{7-Spades} flop and the {4-Hearts} turn and when the {8-Hearts} completed the board, Schwartz handed over all but 11,000 of his stack.
