Christian “CalcFather” Calcano moved all in for 1,226,311 from middle position and "samadhi" called from the big blind.

Christian “CalcFather” Calcano : {9-Clubs}{a-Clubs}
"samadhi": {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}

It was a flip but Calcano needed to improve to stay alive. That proved easier said than done as the board ran out {10-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{7-Hearts} to put an end to their run.

It may have been a brief final table appearance, but it was still Calcano's first, which came after he's been working on his came with WSOP bracelet winner Ryan Laplante's Learn Pro Poker.
