Rick Salomon First to Exit
As one of the four players in the event that has played ever seven-figure buy-in in poker history, Rick Salomon is no stranger to the biggest stage in poker. Unfortunately for him, that didn’t pay off as he busted in the early goings of the event.
As reported by our friends at PokerNews, Salomon got tangled up with Andrew Pantling in the recreational player bracket as they took a four-bet pot to the flop. With 220,000 chips in the middle, the flop brought out queen-jack-eight with two spades and after a flurry of action, Salomon got 642,000 chips into the middle with ace-king of spades versus the top set of queens held by the Canadian.
The turn and river brought no help for Salomon whose elimination saw Pantling shoot up to the top of the chip counts.
Tom Dwan’s Salomon Troll Backfires
After Salomon’s elimination, Dwan quickly jumped to Twitter to throw out a nice needle only for him to quickly follow him out the door an hour later.
