Aussie Millions Main Event

Nelson Sliding; Jomeen Thriving

Karim Jomeen

From under the gun, Patrick Healy limped in. Action then folded to 2006 Aussie Millions Main Event champion Lee Nelson in the small blind and he made the call to complete the bet. Karim Jomeen checked his option in the big blind and the flop came down {8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Nelson led for 30,000, Jomeen called and Healy mucked.

The {A-Diamonds} fell on the turn and Nelson bet 55,000. Jomeen called again, this time to see the {A-Clubs} pair the board on the river. Nelson checked and Jomeen checked behind.

Nelson showed the {J-Clubs}{6-Hearts} for aces and sixes with a jack kicker. Jomeen had him beat with the {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for aces and eights with a queen kicker to win the pot.
