Aden Salazar opened from the button for 700,000 and got called by both other players. He continued for 600,000 on the flop. Sandeep Pulusani, the small blind, raised to 1,800,000. Esther Taylor got out of the way before Salazar moved all in. Pulusani snap called and the players were off to the races.
Pulusani had Salazar crushed, with over 95% equity. When the hit the felt on the turn, Salazar was left drawing dead. The completed the board, much to the disappointment of Taylor, who said she had folded ace-three.
Pulusani scooped the pot, doubling up and moving into the chip lead. Salazar, who entered the day as the chip leader and has enjoyed a very large stack all day long, suddenly finds himself as the short stack at the table.
