Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Karamalikis to Blame for Neilson Melt Down?

[user80015] • Nivel 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Jonathan "xMONSTERxDONGx" Karamalikis came over to sweat his good buddy and fellow Australian Daniel Neilson after he busted the six-handed.

"Hurry up and bust so we can go!" stated Karamalikis before adding, "How sick would it be if you got Jacks this hand?"

Once Neilson received his hand, he opened the pot to 4,400 and was called in one spot before Young Phan three-bet to 14,400 from the big blind.

Neilson pushed out a four-bet of 30,400 to force the player caught in the middle to fold only to have Phan move all in for 93,900. Neilson instantly called as the cards were placed on their backs.

Neilson: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Phan: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}

With Karamalikis' predication nearly coming true he kind of wished it did as the flop came {3-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{2-Clubs} to keep Phan in the lead.

The {3-Hearts} on the turn changed little, and when the {8-Hearts} landed on the river, Neilson was sent to the rail as Phan soared to 190,000 in chips.
