Salomon Finds the Mute Button for Kabrhel

ajlamers • Level 9: 15,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Rick Salomon

Martin Kabrhel limped in from early position which invited Masashi Oya to come along on the button. Rick Salomon raised to 140,000 from the small blind and only Kabrhel called.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Salomon checked to Kabrhel who just shoved all in. "I'll make it easy for you," Kabrhel said. Salomon was having none of it though as he quickly called off his stack of 700,000 chips.

Rick Salomon: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Martin Kabrhel: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}

Despite trailing on the flop, Salomon nailed the {k-Diamonds} on the turn to take the lead. The {q-Hearts} on the river only improved him to a flush to double up through Kabrhel.

"Isn't that the definition of getting what you asked for?" Chance Kornuth chuckled. The table finally got relief as Kabrhel remained quiet for at least the time being.
