Upon busting the World Poker Tour event in New Jersey earlier this week, Matt Salsberg tweeted that he literally flipped a coin to determine which tournament to play next — the EPT Grand Final or another stop at nearby Philadelphia.

"Just did best of 3 coin flip to either go to Monte Carlo tomorrow or WSOPC Philly. Tails MC, Heads Philly. Both tails," Salsberg tweeted. "Then I flipped it 4 more times and it came tails all 4 times. 6 flips in a row said Monte Carlo. #Destiny."

Salsberg hopped a flight across the pond, but it turned out to be anything but destiny. The WPT Season XI Player of the Year nursed a short stack much of the day, and he finally got it in holding {k-}{q-}. Unfortunately for him, Team PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein held {a-}{k-}. The board ran out a clean {5-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{X-} and that was all she wrote for Salsberg.
