Candio Catches

Shamus • Nivel 3: 150-300, 0 ante
Filippo Candio

We just had a big hand involving 2010 November Niner Filippo Candio.

There was 3,000 in the middle when the flop came {2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Candio tossed out a bet of 1,700 from early position, then his opponent on the button raised to 4,200. Soon Candio was all in for his entire stack of 31,300, and his opponent -- covered by Candio -- made the call.

Candio showed {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for the nut flush draw plus outs to a wheel, while his opponent turned over {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for two pair. There was a delay while the players waited for the cameras to arrive to shoot the hand's conclusion, during which Candio stood quietly, looking up toward the ceiling and swaying back and forth.

Finally, the dealer burned and dealt the turn -- the {J-Hearts}!

Candio had caught a heart to make his flush, but still had to dodge his opponent filling up on the river. The river brought the {Q-Spades} and a brief pump of the fist from Candio. He'd eliminated an opponent, and moves up to 66,000.
