In the last hand before the break, WPT Champions Club member Matt Salsberg raises UTG+1 to 40,000, and Danny Shiff calls from the big blind. The flop comes KJ4, Shiff checks, Salsberg bets 65,000, and Shiff calls.
The turn is the 5, Shiff checks, Salsberg bets 125,000, and Shiff calls.
The river card pairs the board with the J, Shiff checks, and Salsberg bets 150,000. Shiff thinks for a little while and says, "This is gonna be so sick."
Shiff calls with 85 -- two pair, jacks and fives. Salsberg stands up to get a better look at Shiff's cards and says, "Oh my God." Shiff says, "I was gonna bluff if the diamond came, but I caught the five." Salsberg seems stunned as he repeats, "Oh my God."
Salsberg mucks his cards without showing, and Danny Shiff wins the pot.
Danny Shiff - 925,000 (57 bb)
Matt Salsberg - 335,000 (20 bb)
