Jivkov Takes Massive Pot Off Vedes

Nick Jivkov

Nick Jivkov came in for a raise to 55,000 on the button, and Tommy Vedes defended his big blind. The flop came down {6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{4-Spades}, and Vedes check called a bet of 50,000. The {9-Spades} hit the turn, and Vedes checked again to Jivkov, who made it 65,000 to go. Vedes beat Jivkov into the pot, and the river brought the {q-Spades}. Vedes checked one more time, and Jivkov assembled a huge bet of 268,000. Vedes went deep into the tank, as he slowly assembled the call, and slowly ran his hand up and down the tower of chips. This was worth half of his remaining stack, so it was a big decision for Vedes.

Eventually he slid the call in, and Jivkov said "nuts" and showed {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Vedes slammed his hand down on the table, and mucked his hand. After the pot, Jivkov has a massive lead over the field, sitting on 1.7 million, while Vedes tumbles down to 250,000.
