Jivkov Relents to Pellegrino's Pressure

Posted 2012-06-01 GMT-6 by

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.
