James Calderaro
James Calderaro stares down his opponent across the table after moving all in on the river.

James Calderaro raised under the gun to 5,000, Alexander Haber called from middle position, and the player on the button reraised to 25,000. Calderaro and Haber both called.

The flop came Ah9c6s, and it checked to the button, who bet 35,000. Calderaro called, and Haber folded.

The turn card was the 4c, and both players checked.

The river card was the 4s, and Calderaro moved all in. The player on the button had about 40,000 left in his stack, and he tanked for a long time before he folded. Calderaro took the pot to reach 600,000 in chips.
