Salomon’s Dominance

Salomon is a tough opponent to face on the felt as he doesn’t fear making huge bluffs. Bright clashed with Pamela Anderson in a tricky moment.

Tjokro used 10♠10♥ to make a $6,200 raise and kicked off the hand as Bright called with Q♠Q♦. Salomon used J♣10♣ to make a $6,200 raise in a late position. A flop turned A♣Q♥3♣ after three players flopped.

Salomon and Bright clashed in the hand each getting the board’s favor. The former wagered $10,500 on the combo draw and the latter called. K♦ landed on the turn, hence completing the straight.

Even so, Bright had a $30,000 lead when Salomon made a $150,000 check-raise. Many spectators eagerly watched to see if a set of queens would fold as one card remained.

Bright made the day’s fold against Salomon. The latter flopped a set of aces several minutes later, against the former’s set of deuces. Bright folded a huge raise on the river before Salomon won the $144,000 pot.

The former used J♦J♣ to face the latter’s A♣J♠ when a 10♠10♥J♥ flop occurred. The full house dominated as Bright won a $115,000 pot. PokerGO will host High Stakes Poker Season 11 Episode 9 on October 16 at 5 p.m. PT.
