Event 20: 9th Place - Calenzo

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Kevin Calenzo
Blinds: 60k/120k/10k
Calenzo raises to 255 UTG, Bobby Oboodi makes it 705k, and Calenzo tanks before moving 2.3 million all in. Oboodi snap calls.

Oboodi: K♣ K
Calenzo: J J♣
Flop: A 9♠ 2♠
Turn: 6
River: 6♠
Calenzo's pocket jacks can't catch up to pocket kings and he's on the rail, while Oboodi is second in chips with 8 million.
"The last hand is pretty sick," says Calenzo, "We're all trying to move up a pay bump, so he could be three-betting me pretty light there.  I almost folded, it was 50/50, but I went with my read and he happened to have kings."
Kevin Calenzo finishes in 9th place, earning $77,569.
