Pelton Soars to the Top

AnthonyThompson • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Chan Pelton

Brandon Kelzenberg opened under the gun for 200,000 and was called by Ben Hanson from the hijack before Chan Pelton three-bet to 700,000 from the button.

Action folded back to Kelzenberg who four-bet to 1.7 million and Hanson quickly released his hand while Pelton jammed for 3,910,000.

Kelzenberg snap-called and the two players tabled their hands.

Chan Pelton: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Brandon Kelzenberg: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

Pelton picked-up aces at the perfect time and the {q-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} runout secured his double-up, making him the new chip leader.
