Jeff Sarwer – poker star?

Remember Jeff Sarwer? The little kid who was a commentator on Shelby Lyman’s PBS broadcasts of the 1987 World Chess Championship? The “villain” in the book Searching for Bobby Fischer? The controversial figure whose family fled to Europe a half-step ahead of the social workers?

He’s on TV right now (Tuesday night, 8-9 PM ET) playing poker in ESPN’s broadcast of the 2010 World Series of Poker.

This ain’t a hoax, gang. Norman and Lon were even talking about Jeff’s chess career while they were showing a hand he was involved in.

Speaking of Fischer, Karsten Mueller’s book on Fischer is now on sale from ChessCentral.

Have fun! — Steve
