Mitchell Takes Pot from Sarnoff

blaisebourgeois • Level 37: 400,000-800,000, 800,000 ante

Ben Sarnoff called from the small blind and Charles Mitchell checked his option.

The flop came {a-Spades}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Sarnoff fired a bet of 1,000,000. Mitchell called.

Both players checked the {j-Clubs} turn and Sarnoff bet 1,500,000 quickly after the {k-Diamonds} river hit the board. Mitchell thought about it for some time before putting out a raise of 4,000,000.

Sarnoff seemed puzzled: "Can you really beat this hand? I can't tell if this is old Mitch or new Mitch." Sarnoff folded and Mitchell was back to nearly 15,000,000.

Chip leader Ben Sarnoff opened for 1,200,000 from the hijack and was called by Charles Mitchell in the cutoff and Kathy Liebert in the big blind.

The flop came {q-Spades}{6-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and it checked around to Mitchell, who fired out a bet of 1,600,000. Liebert raised to 3,700,000 and after Sarnoff got out of the way, Mitchell quietly pushed his entire stack in front of him.

Liebert asked for a count and after hearing that it was 11,000,000 total, she folded after roughly two minutes. "I'm gonna let you have this one Mitch."

With that, Mitchell has more than doubled his starting stack from the beginning of the day.
