Karamalikis Picks One Up

A player opened to 550 from the hijack seat, Jonathan Karamalikis three-bet to 1,200 on the button, and Lee Nelson cold-called from the small blind. The original raiser called as well.

The flop fell {8-Clubs}{a-Spades}{9-Clubs}, and all three players checked. The turn was the {7-Clubs}, Nelson led out for 900, and both players called. The {10-Clubs} completed the board, and again all three players checked.

Nelson tabled {a-Hearts}{q-Spades} for a pair of aces, but Karamalikis had that beat with {10-Hearts}{10-Spades} for a set of tens. He shipped the pot, and now sits with just over 36,000 chips. Nelson slipped down to around 19,000.
