Fergal Nealon goes by the name "@midnitekowby" on Twitter, and after staring down Jesse James Sylvia in a heads-up duel, the Irishman proved that gunslinging handle to be quite appropriate.
We caught the action on the river, with the board reading , and more than 12,000 in the pot waiting to be won.
Nealon fired out a single orange T5000 tournament chip and stared across the table at Sylvia, who is no stranger to tough decisions after finishing 2nd in last year's Main Event. Sylvia went into the tank, and stayed there for more than three minutes, slowly riffling a stack of chips while mulling his options.
Eventually, Sylvia cut out a stack and pushed it forward for the call, while Nealon quickly turned over , confident that his ace-high was the best hand. Sure enough, Sylvia's hand was shot into the muck, and the sizable pot was pushed to Nealon, who begins his Day 2 by besting one of the game's young guns.
