Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em

Sarnow Building a Stack Early

ajlamers • Level 1: 100-100, 0 ante

Petr Liesner opened to 300 from early position and Florian Sarnow stuck in a three-bet to 1,100 on the button. Evian Christ called from the small blind and Liesner came along for the ride.

The flop fell {8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and the action checked to Sarnow who continued for 2,500. Christ and Liesner both called to see the {q-Diamonds} on the turn. The action checked around to the {4-Hearts} on the river and again, the action checked to Sarnow. He wasn't ready to let the betting stop as he tossed in 4,000 which Christ called.

Sarnow flipped over {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} for two pair and that proved to be good enough to earn him the pot. Sarnow has worked his way to nearly 60,000 chips in just the first level.
