Deanna Goodson - 24 Jan 2009

Lee Nelson was the last man standing at the eleventh event of the 2009 Aussie Millions Championship. The man known as ‘Final Table” shone in the final table of the $1,100 Pot Limit Omaha competition at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.

Despite entering in the middle of the pack, Nelson, a former doctor who was born in the United States, dominated his opponents, eliminated several en route to heads-up play with Rainer Quel with a 6:1 chip advantage.

Despite that, Quel kept Nelson going for more than four hours. Regardless, he emerged victorious and claimed the title as well as the $32,400 top prize.
