Joao Simao

Joao Simao shoved from the button for 315,000 and was snap-called by Rainer Kempe.

Joao Simao: {j-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Rainer Kempe: {a-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

The Brazilian rail came closer to see how the board would run out while hoping for a five.

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{8-Hearts} to keep Kempe ahead.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} which didn't change the situation as Kempe turned a pair of sixes.

The {10-Clubs} on the river completed the board to seal the deal. No help for Simao as he was eliminated. Simao got up, shook hands with Kempe, and made his way to the payout desk to collect his cash for €289,500.

A recap of today's action is to follow.
