Alexandre Santo Eliminated in 4th Place ($47,660)
Maurice Costigan raised to 275,000 from under the gun and Ole Schemion called on the button. Alexandre Santo three-bet shoved 1,380,000 from the big blind, Costigan folded, and Schemion reluctantly called.
The Brazilian fans gathered and were seemingly content with the showdown, but the flop gave them quite the scare. Schemion stood up and pointed his index fingers skywards as if he anticipated a favorable runout.
The on the turn was safe for Santo but the on the river completed Schemion's straight. Mimicking the PokerStars Players Championship logo, Schemion celebrated with both fists firmly in the air. It was all in good faith, given the positive vibe at the table and around it.
Santo shook everyone's hand before making his way to the exit.
