Congratulations to Queenslander Mitchell Carle who overcame a field of 83 to be crowned the Event #2: $1,050 PokerPro No Limit Hold'em Champion and owner of the coveted Gold Ring.
Carle outlasted a world-class field that included Annette "Annette_15" Obrestad, Emad Tahtouh, Marty Smyth, David Saab and many more. After falling short in third place in a similar event during the 2008 PokerNews Cup, Carle's mix of patience, courage and solid play was rewarded with this victory.
Congratulations to the other final tablists who cashed and as we wrap up our coverage of Event #2, make just to join us tomorrow at 12:30pm where we continue our 2009 Aussie Millions coverage with Event #3: $1,100 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo. We look forward to your company!
With the action on Mitchell Carle he opened with a raise to 20,000. Daniel Neilson immediately moved all in for a further 140,000 and Carle made the call.
The flop came down leaving Neilson drawing to only backdoor outs, and with the landing on the turn Neilson was left drawing dead. The meaningless landed on the river sending the virtual pot in Carle's direction.
For a long day on the virtual felt, Daniel Neilson received $16,600 in prize money for his 2nd placing to Carle.
