$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Neilson Noticed


When we had a wander to the far side of the tournament room we noticed that there are several tables set up to accommodate for the growing field. One of the players we noticed was Daniel Neilson and we also caught a hand that saw him adding to his stack.

A raised pot saw Neilson take to a {8-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop against one opponent. Neilson was first to act and he led for 1,400 before his opponent made a quick call.

The turn came with a {9-Hearts} and this time Neilson check-called a bet of 1,800 and watched as that {5-Spades} landed on the river. Both players slowed down on this last card, opting to check.

Neilson took down the nice little pot holding {k-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}, which was too strong for the {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} of his opponent.

Neilson will be looking to continue his impressive form from 2011 which saw a huge score when he finished in 3rd place in the EPT San Remo event.
