Mark Reilly

Mark Reilly raised to 175,000 from the button and Louie Calvo called from the big blind.

The flop fell {J-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Calvo checked. Reilly bet 225,000 and Calvo made a pot-sized check-raise to 1,065,000, sending Reilly into the tank briefly. He ultimately shoved and Calvo called to put him at risk.

Calvo: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Reilly: {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Spades}

Calvo had the advantage with his pair of jacks and Reilly, who held the nut flush draw and an open-ended straight draw, needed help from the deck to preserve his tournament life. The {10-Diamonds} turn and {9-Diamonds} river changed nothing and Calvo took the pot to end Reilly's deep run in this tournament.
