Salsberg Reclaims Top spot

Matt Salsberg spent long period at the top of the counts on day 1a, and he's trying to do similar today.

The TV writer/producer opened from under the gun and was called by Lukasz Pieniazek in the big blind en route to a {5-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} flop.

Salsberg continued for 3,500 and the Pole check-called to the {9-Diamonds} turn. Pieniazek had 16,300 behind and check-raised it all when Salsberg double-barrelled for 10,000. Call.

Pieniazek: {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for turned trips.
Salsberg: {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for flush and straight draws.

The river came {8-Diamonds} to make Salsberg's flush. He gave a little fist pump and shook his departing opponent's hand. Salsberg clear at the top once more.
