Wakeman Felted by Salter

zedmaster84 • Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Matthew Wakeman

It had been a slippery slope thus far for Louis Salter with barely any pot going towards the Brit. The stack had taken a big hit as well and Salter was down to 710,000 chips, then opened to 85,000. In the big blind, Matthew Wakeman moved all in and Salter called:

Wakeman: {A-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Salter: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}

Similar to the previous showdowns over on table eight, the flop {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{8-Spades} was disastrous for the player at risk. Wakeman was already drawing dead to outright win the pot, only running aces could still ensure a split pot. It was all over after the {2-Hearts} turn and the {Q-Hearts} river didn't matter anymore.
