A French court earlier this month ruled that a Saudi Sheikh does not owe high-stakes poker pro Rick Salomon the amount of $2.8 million that he lost in a poker game in the French Riviera in 2014.
Salomon sued Raad al-Khereiji, a scion of one of Saudi Arabia's richest families, claiming that he won the money fair and square during a Texas Hold'em game at the Tiara Miramar Beach hotel on the French Riviera, but the sheikh apparently welched.
The final table of Event #57: The Big One for One Drop ($1,000,000 buy-in) is set after two days of intensive play! Day 2 began with 31 players and Sam Trickett out in front. After 13 hours of poker action, Rick Salmon (FILM PRODUCER, ACTOR, TELEVISION PRODUCER, ENTREPRENEUR, PROFESSIONAL POKER PLAYER) bagged up the largest stack (23,575,000 chips) amongst the nine survivors.
