Action folds to Season XI WPT Player of the Year Matt Salsberg (pictured), who raises to 11,000. Aaron Overton is in the small blind and three-bets to 30,500 total. The player in the big blind eyes Salsberg’s stack, then four-bets to 73,000 total.
Salsberg takes just a few seconds before moving all-in for 85,000 total. Overton gets a count, thinks for a while, and eventually folds. The other player calls.
Salsberg turns over [KcKd]. His opponent shows [Ac8d].
The [Ad7s6c] is a bad one for Salsberg, as it leaves him drawing to a king in order to survive. As the [9s] comes on the turn and the [4h] on the river, Salsberg turns to Overton and asks if he folded a big ace. Overton confirms he did.
With that, Salsberg is eliminated shortly before Day 2 bags and tags for the evening.
