Simpson Takes on Manole

Ian Simpson is one of a dozen international notables that sat down right at the start and the former Irish Open champion made some chips right away, courtesy of Mihai Manole at the very same table. With around 1,000 in the middle and the board reading :::Kh:::9h:::5d:::6d:::2h, Simpson bet 1,000 and Manole called to get shown :::8s:::7s for a winning straight by Simpson.
