On the flop of {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}, Phil Ivey checked on the button and Rui Cao bet 200,000. Ivey check-raised to 900,000 and Cao reraised to 2 million, then called the shove of Ivey.

Rui Cao: {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Phil Ivey: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

Cao needed an ace or seven, and picked up some more outs on the {J-Clubs} turn. However, a blank {8-Spades} on the river sent the Main Event runner-up to the rail in 5th place for HKD6,299,000 ($802,430).
