Pescatori Doubles Again

Level 24

Stud 8

Pescatori: {J-Spades}{j-Clubs} / {8-Spades}{5-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} / {A-Spades}
Cernuto: {A-Hearts}{k-Hearts} / {A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} / {2-Hearts}

On fifth street, Max Pescatori led with a bet and John Cernuto cut out a raise. Pescatori called for his final 44,000 and the hands were turned over. Pescatori had a pair of jacks and was behind Cernuto's pair of aces. Pescatori instantly improved on sixth street though, catching a third jack and making trips. He filled up on seventh with another ace, giving him jacks full for the win.

Two hands later, Pescatori won another large pot off of Cernuto, crippling Miami John down to 55,000. Pescatori, on the other hand, is now thriving at 490,000.
