James Calderaro

On the first hand of the day, James Calderaro open-shoved for 57,000 from the cutoff. The button thought for a few minutes and Calderaro told him “I want you to call”. They laughed, the button folded, and Michael Johnson moved all in for 136,000 from the small blind to get a fold from the big.

Johnson: TcTd
Calderaro: 9d9h

“I didn’t want him to call!” Calderaro continued.

Johnson was way ahead with the bigger pair and the board came 8s8c5cTsQc. Johnson turned a full house and “Caldo” was sent out early.

Michael Johnson – 201,000 (50 bb)
