Manuel Ruivo

Manuel Ruivo limp-jammed out of the small blind to boost his stack as Brunno Botteon forfeited his raise to 1.25 million out of the big blind.

In the very next hand, it was Damian Salas that limped in and Ruivo raised to 1.5 million in the big blind. Salas filled up and they headed to the {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop.

Salas opted to check and Ruivo bet 750,000 with a stack of around 6 million at his disposal. The check-raise to 5 million by Salas followed.

"Five million? That's almost my all-in ..." Ruivo gasped and then announced his all-in, which Salas snap-called.

Manuel Ruivo: {9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Damian Salas: {10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

The {8-Spades} turn gave Salas an open-ended straight draw on top and Ruivo calmly added "could be worse." It indeed came worse as the {5-Clubs} river improved Salas to a flush and sent Ruivo to the rail in 3rd place for $728,177.
