Alexey Rybin raised to 700,000 and James Calderaro three-bet the pot. Rybin announced a reraise and Calderaro moved all in to pick up a call by Rybin.

Alexey Rybin: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
James Calderaro: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

Calderaro's rail asked for a king and got their wish granted on the {K-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs} flop. Rybin was in need of the case queen or a jack for the straight, but the {K-Diamonds} turn and {8-Hearts} river failed to improve the Russian. Rybin was eliminated in 2nd place for $796,706 while Calderaro's rail jumped from their seats to celebrate.

Calderaro will receive the elusive gold bracelet and a first-place payout of $1,289,074. A recap of today's action will be available later tonight.
