Joao Vieira

Paul Tedeschi opened to 2.5 million in middle position with {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} and Joao Vieira looked down at the {j-Spades}{j-Hearts} in the hijack. Vieira struggled to pick up any hands thus far and was sitting on around 16 big blinds. He shoved all in for 17.5 million and Tedeschi quickly called when the action was back on him.

The flop fell {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} which provided no help to Vieira who was looking to hit a jack. The {a-Hearts} on the turn gave Tedeschi top set and Vieira was left drawing dead to the {10-Spades} on the river. While Vieira was not happy with a ninth-place finish, the $250,000 in his pocket is a nice consolation prize.
