Jack Salter came into the High Roller at the last possible moment and managed to put his stack of less than 10 big blinds into contention. Sadly for Salter, that run came to and end shy of the final table with Chris Hunichen taking out another opponent.
Salter shoved for 108,000 in the cutoff and Hunichen called on the button. It was a relatively fair fight as Salter’s A♣9♦ led the K♦Q♠ of Salter. Salter held through the 7♣5♣2♠ flop but the Q♥ turn put Hunichen in front. The 9♥ river was a moot point and Salter went to the payout cage to collect his min-cash. Hunichen’s chip lead grows higher and he is playing 1,350,000.
