Hand #67: Frank Calo Eliminated in 3rd Place ($167,717)
Level 22: 15,000-30,000, 3,000 ante
Carlos Mortensen raises from the small blind to 90,000, and Frank Calo calls from the big blind. The flop comes 542, Mortensen bets 150,000, and Calo thinks for a few moments before he says, "I'm all in." Mortensen says, "I call."
Calo shows 54 for two pair (fives and fours), and Mortensen turns over 33 for an open-ended straight draw. Calo needs his hand to hold to stay alive.
The turn card is the 8, giving Calo a diamond flush draw and taking a few outs from Mortensen.
The river card is -- the 3!
Mortensen rivers a set of threes to win the pot and eliminate Frank Calo in third place. Calo had been the short stack many times in the past few days, but always found a way to double back into contention -- until now.
Seat 1. Mike Mustafa - 2,071,000
Seat 3. Carlos Mortensen - 2,249,000
Seat 6. Frank Calo - Out in 3rd Place ($167,717)
There will be a short break (15 minutes?) for the money presentation before heads-up play begins between Mustafa and Mortensen.
