Nelson Takes Early Pot

Ramil Tandoc opened with a raise to 15,000 and Tae Jun Noh made the call. The action was then with Lee Nelson, who cut out raising chips, making it 42,000 to go. The blinds folded, as did Tandoc, but Noh made the call.

The flop was {5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} and both players checked. The turn brought the {4-Clubs} and again both players checked. The river was the {10-Spades} and Noh checked for a third time to Nelson, who deliberated before checking behind once again.

Nelson: {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}
Noh: {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}

Nelson collects the pot with ace high!
