Nelson is the River Hero

On the final hand of the day Lee Nelson picked up quite some chips when he made a really nice call against Oliver Speidel. We caught the action on a {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades}{A-Hearts}{8-Hearts} board when Speidel checked to Nelson who bet 150,000 in a reasonable pot. Nothing too crazy just yet, but than Speidel put out a raise to 380,000. Nelson went into the tank for a solid minute but than smoothly pushed forward the 230,000 needed for the call.

Speidel turned over {7-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, for just a pair of eights, and Nelson showed {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}, for just a pair of jacks. The day is over and Nelson just scooped up a nice pot before bagging his chips.
