Aussie Millions Main Event

Nelson Makes Great Call


We regret that we missed the action up until the river, because this was a great call by Nelson. The board was showing {5-Spades}{k-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and Bjorn Li was first to act, with Lee Nelson on the button. There was over 500,000 in the pot at this point and Li led out for 300,000. Nelson thought for quite a while before making the call.

When Nelson turned over {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}, it was enough to take down the pot of over 1,000,000 chips. Li now slips to sit with the least chips in the Main Event.
