Calderaro Calls, Collects

Shamus • Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 400 ante

A player in middle position raised to 8,000, and James Calderaro called from the hijack seat. The flop came {J-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and the preflop raiser quickly bet 12,000. Calderaro wasted no time calling. The turn was the {A-Spades} and again there came a quick bet from Calderaro's opponent, this time for 20,000. Once more, Calderaro immediately called.

The river brought the {3-Hearts}, and the pace slowed while the middle position considered what to do. Finally he bet 25,000, and Calderaro instantly called. "Ace," said Calderaro's opponent showing {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. Calderaro tabled {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for a straight, beating his opponent's pair and taking the pot.

Calderaro has had a productive evening, moving up to 280,000 as we near the end of play for Day 3.
