Shintaro Baba

Shintaro Baba raised to 125,000 from middle position and Manuel Ruivo and Tommy Nguyen called from the blinds. Baba bet 150,000 on the {q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop and only Ruivo called. The Japanese player fired a second barrel worth 375,000 on the {10-Hearts} turn and Ruivo stuck around another street.

The river was the {3-Spades} and Ruivo check-folded when Baba emptied the clip for 750,000. Ruivo finally waved the white flag.
