Pots for Chen and Astedt

zedmaster84 • Level 21: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Firas Sadou has been seemingly involved in almost every pot and managed to take bites out of the big stacks of Anson Tsang and James Chen. The latter just struck back in a battle small blind versus button. The completed board showed {q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Spades}{9-Spades} and Chen led for 375,000.

"No worries, I am not going to raise," Sadou said and eventually folded, claiming to have let go of a flush.

"You think I don't look like a guy that folds a flush?" Sadou added.

One table over, Alex Epstein took another hit to his stack and again it was Niklas Astedt that racked up the chips in the end.

The turn showed {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and Epstein had a bet of 325,000 in front. Astedt moved all in for 1,040,000 and a reluctant fold of Epstein followed.

Astedt flashed the {k-Hearts}, Epstein nodded and Astedt then added "I had you, good fold."
