[user68268]
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.
