Veselin Karakitukov

James Calderaro opened to 200,000 from under the gun and Veselin Karakitukov defended from the big blind. The flop came {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Spades} and both players checked to the {j-Clubs} on the turn.

Karakitukov led out for 190,000 and Calderaro stuck around to see the {4-Clubs} on the river. Karakitukov checked this time and Calderaro announced a pot-sized bet. Karakitukov was put to the test for his last 515,000 and he tanked for over two minutes. Karakitukov eventually made the call and tabled {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for a set of eights. Calderaro showed {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} for the nut flush and Karakitukov was eliminated in 11th place.
