Scott Doubles Through Loiacono as Pelon Folds the Winner

dsalituro • Level 41: 1,250,000-2,500,000, 2,500,000 ante

Jeff Loiacono raised all in for 29,000,000 from under the gun. James Scott called for his last 12,000,000 in middle position before action folded to Jordan Pelon on the button.

Pelon gave the decision some thought before folding, leaving Loiacono and Scott going heads-up to the flop.

James Scott: {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Jeff Loiacono: {a-Spades}{7-Spades}

The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and Loiacono improved no further than the pair of sevens on the flop. Pelon admitted after the hand he folded pocket nines and would've busted both players.
