Pellegrino Doubles Through Jivkov

So close....but no cigar for Nick Jivkov. That's all that can really be said at the moment, as Bryan Pellegrino just caught a miracle river to double through Jivkov. Jivkov called on the button, and Pellegrino made it 150,000 to go. Jivkov called, and the flop came down {7-Spades}{3-Spades}{q-Diamonds}. Pellegrino bet the rest of his chips, about 250,000, and Jivkov quickly made the call.

Jivkov: {8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Pellegrino: {6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

Jivkov was miles ahead with middle pair, as Pellegrino could only catch a five for a straight, or running pairs to double up. The turn came the {7-Clubs}, giving Jivkov trips, though it didn't really change much, as Pellegrino still needed a five. Pellegrino leaned down to take a very close look at the bracelet on the table, likely thinking "this is as close as I'm getting to this". But.....

The river: {5-Clubs}

Jivkov was stunned in his seat, while Pellegegrino let out a huge sigh of relief. Pellegrino doubled up to 900,000, but he still has a ways to go to make the comeback.
