Matt Salsberg raised to 140,000 on the button with {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, Theo Jorgensen three-bet from the big blind holding {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, and Salsberg called. The flop was {4-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}, Jorgensen led out for 300,000, and Salsberg quickly called.

The turn was the {5-Hearts}, and Jorgensen led again - this time for 750,000. Salsberg sat quietly, riffling his chips, then looked at his stack. He grabbed a handful of T100,000 plaques, added a few blue T25,000 chips, and after more than three minutes in the tank, he called.

The {10-Diamonds} completed the board, and Jorgensen gave up, checking to Salsberg who instantly checked behind.

Salsberg was relieved to see that he had the best hand, and happily raked in the pot.
