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

Salomon Puts Big Pressure on Hansen


Gus Hansen raised it up to 185,000 from late position and Rick Salomon defended his big blind.

The flop came down {10-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn was the {J-Diamonds} and again it was checked.

This hand seemed to be of small importance, but then the {5-Hearts} got both players to put in chips.

Salomon lead out for 200,000 and Hansen decided to raise it up to 605,000. Salomon put in a three-bet to 1,605,000 and the pressure was back on Hansen. After tanking for a very long time, and counting out the million needed to make the call, he folded his cards.
