Bad Start for the National Champion

[user153638] • Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

Less than a week ago, WSOP bracelet winner Dominik Nitsche took down the 2014 WSOP National Championship in Atlantic City for $352,800 and his second gold bracelet.

Nitsche, whose first bracelet came in a $1,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em event, is in action today looking for more success; however, he has an early speed bump in the form of Kevin Haff.

We caught the action on the river with 500 in the pot and a board reading {5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{k-Spades}{7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. Haff had bet 225 from the small blind and Nitsche raised him to 550 from the hijack. Haff thought for a bit before announcing that he was all in, and Nitsche thought for about ten seconds before folding.

"Six?" Nitsche asked his opponent. Haff then table the {9-Spades}{6-Clubs} for the nuts.
