2006 Champ Nelson Getting Stronger

Lee Nelson

From under the gun, Lee Nelson raised to 23,000. Patrick Healy called on the button, Phil Ivey called from the small blind and Oliver Speidel called from the big blind.

The four players took the {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop and Ivey led for 60,000. Speidel folded and Nelson raised to 125,000. Healy ducked out of the way, then Ivey called.

The turn brought the {5-Spades} and Ivey checked. Nelson slid out two tall towers of yellow T5,000 chips topped by two chocolate T25,000 chips totaling 250,000. Ivey gave it up and Nelson won the pot.
