Early Action Rundown: Salmi Runs Up

The first half of the first level has seen very few showdowns, but a good shakeup of a couple of the stack sizes. The main increaser is Ville Salmi:

A few hands ago, he called a Teemu Kangasvieri button raise out of the big blind. On the Q♥ 6♠ 6♣ flop, Salmi checked, Kangasvieri bet 33k but was quickly min raised to 66k. He was rewarded with a slow fold.

Then a few hands later a pot which started fourway after everyone seemed interested in calling Daniel Ferreira's preflop raise to 17,500 turned into a bigger coup for Salmi. On the 9♣ 4♣ 7♣ flop, it checked round to the button who happened to be, yes, Ville Salmi. He promptly bet just 20k, called by big blind Ola Brandborn alone.

The turn: J♠ Now Brandborn checked, Salmi bet 45k, and Brandborn instacalled.

The river: K♦ Check once more to Salmi, who bet 100k (4 25k chips) faster than you could blink, which looks to have been called by Brandborn in the same microsecond...

Salmi showed A♣ 3♣ for the flopped nuts, and Brandborn mucked.
