Hand #87: Christian Nilles Survives

Daniel Strelitz raises to 525,000 from the button and Ankush Mandavia calls from the small blind. Christian Nilles calls all in for 365,000 from the big blind and all three players are off to the flop.

The flop comes down     with Mandavia and Strelitz active in a side pot. Both players check and do the same after the   falls on the turn. The   pairs the board on fifth street and Mandavia bets 425,000. Strelitz folds and the active hands go to a showdown.

Mandavia shows    for nines and deuces. Nilles has that beat, however, with    for queens and nines. Nilles scoops the pot and now sits over one million in chips.

Christian Nilles - 1,215,000 (5 bb)
