Triton Million - A Helping Hand for Charity

Salomon First Player Eliminated

Webjoker • Level 2: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante
Rick Salomon

Rick Salomon opened to 10,000 from middle position, Sosia Jiang called in the hijack and Andrew Pantling three-bet to 30,000 on the button. Salomon pushed in a 110,000 four-bet, Jiang quickly let go of her hand and Pantling took a moment before he pushed in the chips to call.

The flop came down {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, Salomon bet 50,000 and Pantling instantly bumped it up to 150,000. Salomon moved his remaining stack of 642,000 into the middle and Pantling snap-called.

Rick Salomon: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Andrew Pantling: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Salomon had a nut flush draw and a straight possibility against Pantling's top set. The {4-Hearts} on the turn changed nothing and Salomon would need to hit to stay alive.

The {8-Diamonds} river card sill changed nothing as Pantling took down the pot with his queens full, making Salomon the first casualty of the Triton Million.
