James Calderaro Doubles Up

James Calderaro raised to 275,000, and Artem Babakhanyan called on the button, as did Alexey Rybin in the big blind.

On the {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop, Rybin checked, and Calderaro bet 700,000, which only Babakhanyan called. The {6-Hearts} fell on the turn, and Calderaro asked for the size of the pot, which was 2,275,000. He bet that much after brief consideration with only 100,000 behind. Babakhanyan cut out the chips fior the call and had it covered by some 16 big blinds, then said, "I call the all-in," without realizing that Calderaro still had chips behind.

Calderaro nearly exposed his cards, and the {A-Spades}{6-Spades} were visible before he turn them over again and confirmed to go all in dark. The {Q-Spades} on the river failed to improve Babakhanyan, and he shook his head while Calderaro flipped over his {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}.

Babakhanyan mucked his {5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} face-up for busted straight and flush draws.
