James Calderaro raised from middle position to 3,500, and Oz Aharon called from the small blind.

Both players checked to the turn on a board of 8d5c3sAs, Aharon checked, Calderaro bet 5,000, and Aharon called.

The river card was the 4s, Aharon checked, Calderaro bet 18,000, and Aharon check-raised all in, covering Calderaro. Calderaro stopped to think, saying, “I made a flush.”

Calderaro thought for a while before he called all in for about 55,000, and Aharon asked, “You made a flush?”

Calderaro showed his 7s5s for a seven-high flush, and another player asked Aharon if he had a deuce for a straight.

Aharon said, “No, I also made a flush,” and he turned over 9s6s to win the pot with a nine-high flush. Calderaro said something about a slow-roll as he was eliminated from Flight C.

Oz Aharon  –  140,000  (88 bb)
James Calderaro  –  Eliminated
