Rick Salomon, born January 24, 1968, is a film producer known for his relationships with the likes of E.G. Daily, Shannen Doherty, Paris Hilton, and Pamela Anderson. Interestingly, the ladies also defined Salomon here today.

In a recent hand, Talal Shakerchi opened for 20,000 only to have Salomon three-bet all in for 110,000. November Niner and current EPT10 Player of the Year leader David Benefield then four-bet all in over the top for 288,000 total. Shakerchi gave it some thought before making the call, and he no doubt regretted it upon seeing the cards.

Shakerchi: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Salomon: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Benefield: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

Benefield's queens held as the board ran out {6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and Salomon made a hasty exit from the tournament floor, giving him the evening off in London. Meanwhile Shakerchi counted out chips to send to his opponent.
