RIP Nick Calcaterra 6-25-21
Tragically, Nick Calcaterra died in a car wreck Friday night. If you played in Vintage tournaments anywhere in the midwest 2005-2012 you probably met him. IIrc his best ever performance was 4th at Gencon vintage worlds in 2007 with dredge.
Nick was like a brother to me and we've stayed close long after I quit magic. He got a doctorate from Berkeley and had investments and schemes going in like 4 different cities.
We're having a tribute party in St. Louis this Friday night at Handlebar at 4127 Manchester.
Picture is Nick and me at a libertarian convention in New Hampshire 2014.

I remember him. He was active on the old site before Brainstorm got restricted. Good guy. He will be missed.
That's really sad news Rob. I played against Nick in the 2007 Top 8. He was a nice guy and it's awful to see that he's passed at a young age. Condolences to you and to everyone he was close to.
