Rick Salomon Eliminated

Hand #228: We've seen many an all-in shove go uncalled during three-handed play but this time we, and the spectators, did get a showdown.

Elton Tsang opened to 2,600,000 on the button, Rick Salomon moved all-in for 15,600,000, Anatoly Gurtovoy called the all-in and Tsang got out of the way.

Salomon: {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Gurtovoy: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

Salomon was in deep trouble as Gurtovoy had a dominating hand, however, it was domination rotation on the {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Spades} flop as Salomon vaulted into the lead. The {A-Diamonds} turn was a rollercoaster of a card though as it put Gurtovoy back in the lead. A large crowd looked on as the dealer delivered the {8-Spades} on the river and Salomon was eliminated in third place earning €3,000,000.
