While Phil Collins, who just busted, has his shot at the millions a month from now, Filippo Candio had his chance last year. The flamboyant Italian managed to finish fourth for just over three million dollar in the 2010 Main Event and has been a regular on the tournament circuit ever since. Todays tournament is not going the right way so far.
We picked up the action when Candio and his opponent had already reached the river. The board read with around 2.100 chips in the middle when Candio bet 1.600 from the small blind. His Russian opponent, Vasily Kurdin, gave it some thought and decided to raise making it 3.425. Candio almost snap called and mucked his face up after Kurdin showed him for the nut flush.
