Salsberg Takes Chip Lead with Straight

Matt Salsberg

Matt Salsberg raised to 21,000 from under the gun, and Justin Bonomo called from the big blind to see the flop come down {K-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. After Bonomo checked, Salsberg fired 20,000. Bonomo called.

The turn was the {8-Clubs}, and Bonomo checked again. This time, Salsberg bet 45,000, and Bonomo check-raised to 150,000. Salsberg tanked, then called.

The river was the {9-Clubs} and completed a backdoor flush draw. Bonomo slid out 250,000, and Salsberg snap-called, to which Bonomo showed {K-}{8-} for two pair. Salsberg tabled the {Q-Spades}{J-Hearts} for a straight, and he won the pot.
