Lee Salem

Ben Yu brought in and Lee Salem completed. Yu bet on fourth street and Salem raised all in for 66,000 total. Yu called.

"Do you have three deuces?" asked Salem.

Ben Yu: {7-Spades}{4-Clubs} / {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{q-Hearts} / {x-}
Lee Salem: {7-Hearts}{4-Spades} / {6-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} / {x-}

Salem made a pair of his own on sixth street, and Yu would have to catch on seventh street to eliminate his opponent.

Yu caught a {9-Hearts} rendering Salem's {5-Diamonds} meaningless and the latter won the pot.
