Calderaro Makes a Play and Smith Makes a Call

TerranceReid • Level 8: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante
James Calderaro

Action picked up on the river with a scary board of {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. James Calderaro had position and made a bet of 30,000 into a pot of about 60,000 after action had checked to him.

Elliot Smith went deep into the tank.

"Can I look at my phone?" asked Calderaro, and the dealer shook his head.

Smith eventually landed on a call for a large portion of his remaining chips.

Calderaro flipped up the {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}.

"Nice hand, sir," said Smith who also flipped up {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}.

"That is a bad player. Bad," said Calderaro with a smile and both players shared a laugh. "Jesus Christ, man, everything beats you."

Everything except Calderaro's hand, which resulted in a chop and a few laughs.
