Ramil Tandoc

Pre-flop, Ramil Tandoc raised to 125,000 and Ronald Dimaano made the call.

After the flop came {5-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}, Ramil bet 150,000. Ronald thought about it before finally raising to 300,000. Ramil made the call.

Both players then checked when the {q-Clubs} came on the turn.

On the river {j-Hearts}, Ramil checked to Ronald, who thought long and hard before declaring check as well.

The crowd perked up as Ramil showed {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} to Ronald's {k-}{j-}, a scenario that easily could have turned into an all-in situation.

Luckily for Ronald, he decided to just play it safe and it turned out well for him as he avoids losing a big part of his stack.
