Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Juanda Doubles Through Pellegrino

John Juanda was part of the last table to be broken, and he took the seat to the right of Terrence Chan and our chip leader Bryan Pellegrino. Juanda got a warm welcome to the table, as he doubled up just a few hands into his stay at table 436.

We missed the exact action, but we know that Juanda got all his money in preflop holding {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades} against Pellegrino, who was holding {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}. The board was all safe for Juanda, coming down {j-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades}, and Juanda jumped up to over 70,000. Meanwhile, Pellegrino loses the chip lead, but is still plenty healthy with 130,000.
