Vivian Saliba

On a flop reading {q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, Vivian Saliba checked from the small blind along with Uselis Gediminas in the big blind and Kenneth Smaron on the button.

The turn brought the {3-Clubs} and Saliba checked again. Gediminas fired 850,000 and Smaron called. Saliba responded by moving all in for 7,275,000. Gediminas folded and Smaron went deep into the tank, then made the call.

Vivian Saliba: {9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Kenneth Smaron: {q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Smaron had turned two pair but Saliba had turned a flush. The {8-Diamonds} river filled up the board and Saliba raked in the pot.
