Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Two For Salomon

Happy_Freaked • Level 10: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

"I've never seen you fold three hands in a row before," Antonio Esfandiari joked with Rick Salomon who raised it up to 120,000.

Salomon smiled as he took down the blinds and antes, and on the very next hand he called a raise from the big blind.

The flop showed {10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and when Salomon led out for 100,000, his opponent Isaac Haxton called. The turn was the {8-Hearts} and this time Haxton folded when Salomon bet 200,000.

"For the first time in my life I'm not terrified of you," Esfandiari said to Salomon, "But I'm still scared."

Esfandiari's keeping the atmosphere at the table light-hearted and for now everyone seems very relaxed despite there being millions of dollars on the line.
