Neilson Busts Late


Daniel Neilson hasn't been able to survive Day 1b and we managed to catch the hand which saw his demise late into the evening.

Neilson opened the action preflop and Jai Gao made the call as the {6-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{8-Spades} flop was dealt. Gao check-called a bet from Neilson and watched as the {7-Diamonds} fell on the turn. This is when all the action started occuring and eventually Neilson had all his chips in.

Neilson: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Gao: {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Gao managed to hit the straight after flopping a double-belly-buster and when the river bricked it was all over for Neilson.
