It finally took two big starting hands to get things moving. James Salmon min-raised his button and immediately called when Vitor Coelho moved all-in.

Salmon’s ThTs was ahead for the title against AhKh and stayed that way on the 7d5c3c flop. The turn was a blank Jd and Coelho called for an ace.

Instead the dealer gave him the river Kc to save his tournament and give him a slight lead.

James Salmon – 26,000,000 (22 bb)
Vitor Coelho – 28,000,000 (23 bb)
