Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Salaburu the Swift

[user38338] • Nivå 7: 300-600, 75 ante

2012 WSOP Main Event eighth-place finisher Robert Salaburu is back again this year and off to a fast start once again. He's acting quickly when in hands, too, as we became accustomed to seeing last year.

Just now a player opened for 1,300 from middle position and Salaburu immediately called from a couple of seats over. The big blind came along as well, and the flop came {5-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. It checked to the raiser who bet 2,200, and Salaburu's calling chips were hitting the felt even before the original bet had been slid all of the way forward. The big blind folded, then both remaining players checked the {2-Diamonds} turn.

The river brought the {3-Hearts}. Salaburu's opponent checked this time, and he rapidly tossed out 1,700 as a bet. His opponent called, and before he'd slid out the needed chips Salaburu was already showing his hand — {10-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for tens. The pair was good, as his opponent finished putting out his call then mucked his hand.
