Nelson Struggling

Lee Nelson is finding the going tough out there today as his stack continues to head in the wrong direction. In a recent pot he opened with a raise from early position to 850 before the player to his immediate left put in a small re-raise to 1,700. The table folded around and Nelson thought long and hard before committing another 850 into the middle.

The flop came down {5-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Nelson checked to his opponent who fired out 1,600. Nelson only had about 4,500 behind, but decided to save them for a better spot as he laid his hand down.
