Dan Sewnig started the final table of this six-max second in chips behind George Alberto but held the advantage of being two to the left of Alberto. The roles are now reversed and Sewnig is in the chip lead after taking down a large pot preflop against Alberto.
From the hijack, Alberto raised to 60,000 and Sewnig three-bet to 155,000 from the button. Action folded back to Alberto who put in a four-bet to 360,000. Undeterred by Alberto’s aggression, Sewnig five-bet to 710,000. Alberto thought for less than a minute and gave up his hand, conceding the pot.
With the pot, Sewnig is up to over 1,700,000 while Alberto drops below 1,000,000. It will be interesting if this dynamic continues as the final table wears on.
