Kevin Calenzo defeats "Will The Thrill" Failla

Event 5: $1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em

It took a cooler to get our two finalists all in, and on a 286 flop, they did exactly that.  Kevin Calenzo held the nuts with 88, but was vulnerable to "Will The Thrill" Failla's flush draw with KJ.  That draw failed to materialize when the turn and river came 97, and when the river landed, Failla humorously claimed he had a straight.  Both Calenzo and Failla's stack were counted down, and after a few minutes, it was determined that Calenzo had Failla slightly covered.  Calenzo will collect $79,307 for his 1st place finish, and Failla will collect $46,735 for his second place finish.
