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

Jivkov Relents to Pellegrino's Pressure

Action began on Nick Livkov, who raised the pot to 180,000. Pellegrino mulled his decision over and decided to flat call, leaving himself just 300,000 behind.

The flop came {7-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and Pellegrino announced he was all in.

Livkov fell deep into the tank. He checked an re-checked his hole cards several times and cut out a call, however, he would not commit them to the middle. After a few minutes, Pellegrino called for the clock and Jivkov was given one minute and ten seconds to make a decision. Livkov continued to tank and the announcer began a ten-second countdown. Livkov finally folded his hand as the tournament announcer reached a "one" count and the pot was shipped to Pellegrino - who now has 660,000.
