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

Neilson Doubles Through Lewis

Daniel Neilson was all in preflop for around 14,000 holding {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} and up against the {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} of Toby Lewis. While Neilson was the favorite, Lewis was drawing to live cards. The {2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{J-Spades} was reassuring to Neilson as it paired his jack and left Lewis drawing to a king. Fortunately for the at-risk player, the {Q-Hearts} turn and {6-Hearts} river missed his opponent.

Neilson doubled on the hand to 28,000 while Lewis was knocked back to 40,000.
