Callucci Gives Up a Few, Gives Us a Chance to Remember, Too

Shamus • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

There was about 3,000 in the middle including a player in middle position and Frank Callucci in the cutoff. Both checked down the {K-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{4-Clubs}{K-Spades} board. Callucci tabled his {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} appeared to have earned at least half the chips when his opponent showed the {A-Spades} but not his second card. But then {4-Spades} was flipped over, and Callucci lost the small pot.

Callucci has caught our eye today thanks both to his resemblance to the late Amir Vahedi -- the much liked player who passed way in early 2010 -- and the fact that he's wearing a t-shirt with Vahedi's likeness on it. He explained to us that he's a fan of the one-time WSOP bracelet winner and was given the shirt by Vahedi when he once met him.

Callucci is hoping to resemble Vahedi in another way, too, perhaps by matching Vahedi's memorable 2003 ME final table performance in which he finished fourth. Callucci currently has about 55,000.
