Aussie Millions Main Event

The 2006 Champ Stays Alive

Lee Nelson

Lee Nelson, who won the Aussie Millions Main Event in 2006, is still going strong today. He was just all-in for almost his entire stack against Rob Raymond. Nelson opened the action with a raise to 13,000 from the cut-off after which Raymond three-bet to 28,000 from the button. Both blinds folded and Nelson decided to pop it up to 90,000. Raymond pushed all-in and Nelson made the call for 273,000 total.

"Deuce-three-seven!", Nelson rooted for a good outcome. The flop was {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{6-Hearts} and this almost secured his near double up. The turn was the {8-Clubs} and the river the {10-Diamonds} giving Nelson the knock out. He had Raymond only covered by 6,000 chips and is now cruising as we head into the final stages of the tournament.
