Artem Babakhanyan

Alexey Rybin raised to 350,000 on the button, and James Calderaro called in the small blind. Artem Babakhanyan called from the big blind, and the flop came {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. Babakhanyan moved all in, and Rybin gave it some thought before folding.

"How much is it?" Calderaro asked. Babakhanyan's all in was for 610,000, which he called.

Artem Babakhanyan: {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}
James Calderaro: {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Hearts}

The Russian rail was asking for spades, as that would lock up the double for their countryman. Instead, the {9-Hearts} turn and {6-Hearts} river gave Calderaro a straight, and Babakhanyan was sent to the rail in fourth place for $379,128.

All three remaining players are now guaranteed at least $543,713.
