Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Salomon Pays Off Sexton's Set

Shamus
Mike Sexton

Mike Sexton raised to 100,000 from middle position and it folded to Rick Salomon who called from the small blind.

All three postflop streets went similarly, with Salomon check-calling Sexton each time. After the {5-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop, Salomon check-called a bet of 150,000 right away. After the {8-Diamonds} turn, Salomon checked and called a bet of 250,000, again without hesitation.

The river brought the {10-Clubs}. Salomon slapped the table with an open palm, indicating a check, and this time Sexton bet 400,000. Salomon paused a beat this time, then said "I call." Sexton quickly tabled {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} for a set, and Salomon winced as he mucked.
