Damian Salas

Hand #102: Dan Ott raised to 3.4 million from early position, and it folded around to the short stack Damian Salas in the big blind. He thought for about 45 seconds before calling, and the flop came down {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}.

Salas checked to Ott, and he put Salas all in. Salas snap called, and the cards were rolled over.

Salas: {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Ott: {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}

Salas was in great shape to double, needing to dodge just a four or a five.

The turn brought the {6-Diamonds}, and Ott needed a river suckout to take the hand.

The river was the {5-Spades}, giving Ott the straight, and the Brasilia room went nuts as Salas, the chip leader at the end of Day 4, became the first eliminated player of the day.

Salas takes home $1,425,000 for his 7th place finish. The remaining six players are guaranteed $1,675,000 from here on out.
