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

Jivkov's Great Call Gets Him Over a Million

Nick Jivkov raised it up to 55,000 on the button, and Tommy Vedes defended his big blind. The flop came down {4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{j-Hearts}, and both players checked. The turn brought the {6-Clubs}, and Vedes cut out a bet of 63,000, and put it into the middle. Jivkov made the call after a few seconds of thought, and the river came the {7-Diamonds}. Vedes took his time in counting out a bet, slowly adding chips to the bet for about 20 seconds, before finally sliding a bet of 123,000 into the middle.

Jivkov went deep into the tank as he counted out the chips for the call. He then cut out some green T25,000 chips for a raise, but ultimately put them back in his stack. After two minutes of thought, he tossed the call in. Vedes said "good call" but didn't show his hand. Neither player wanted to expose their cards, but it was on Vedes to either show or muck. He elected to muck, and Jivkov showed {a-Spades}{8-Hearts} for just ace high. After the pot, Jivkov is over 1.2 million, while Vedes drops to 400,000.
