Event #9: $25,000 Challenge

Bad Beat Sends Neilson to the Rail

Chad_Holloway • Level 13: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Daniel Neilson

A short-stacked Daniel Neilson raised all in from the cutoff for 75,000 and Ben Tollerene called from the button. Both blinds folded and the cards were turned on their backs.

Tollerene: {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
Neilson: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

Neilson was a huge favorite to double, but not after the flop came down {9-Spades}{a-Spades}{6-Hearts} to give Tollerene a set. The {4-Spades} turn gave Neilson a bunch more outs — a non-six spade would give him a winning flush — but the {A-Hearts} bricked on the river to send him to the rail.
