SandraBarbour • Level 32: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

Cary Katz raised to 28,000 from mid-position, and Manuel Ruivo, from one seat over, three-bet to 100,000. Marko Maher, on the button, called, and Katz let it go.

On a flop of {j-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, Ruivo check-called a bet of 85,000 from Maher.

The dealer burned and turned the {4-Diamonds} and Ruivo check-called another bet of 185,000 from Maher.

The {3-Spades} completed the board and both players opted to check. Ruivo turned over {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades} and Maher sent his hand to the muck.
