Rifat Palevic limped from the cutoff, James Calderaro raised from the button, Iraj Parvizi called from the small blind, and Palevic called as well.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Parvizi checked. Palevic bet 375,000, Calderaro raised the pot to 1,400,000, Parvizi jammed for about 3,100,000, and Palevic put his stack in as well. Calderaro had the largest of the three stacks and called.

Calderaro: {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}
Parvizi: {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Palevic: {A-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Calderaro had the lead with the flopped nut straight and top two pair, Parvizi was open-ended with a pair of tens, and Palevic had flopped a set of sevens. The {9-Diamonds} fell on the turn which gave both Calderaro and Palevic boats, but Calderaro had the bigger boat with nines full of tens, leaving both Parvizi and Palevic in terrible shape heading to the river. It was the {8-Spades}, and Calderaro took the pot to eliminate both players.
