Salvatore Pipitone

David Shmuel opened to 75,000 from the button and Colby Covington called. Salvatore Pipitone asked how much Shmuel was playing, he said around 300K, and Pipitone raised to 300,000 from the big leaving 60,000 behind. Shmuel thought for a moment, folded, and Covington called.

As soon as the Kc8d6d flop hit the board, Covington tossed out 60K out front, and Pipitone called all in at risk.

Covington: Ac6s6h2c (set of sixes, nut low draw)
Pipitone: AhAdTc9s (pair of aces, no low)

Covington had a huge lead and held as the board finished with the 8c turn and 4d river.
