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 . Pellegrino bet the rest of his chips, about 250,000, and Jivkov quickly made the call.
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 , 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.....
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.
