Viana Doubles Through Stojanovic and Chilaud

Level 41 : 450,000-900,000, 112,500 ante

In a remarkable turn of events, short stack Fernando "fviana" Viana has scored double ups in consecutive hands to all but close the gap to chip leader Maxime "Daghemuneguu" Chilaud.

Viana first three-bet jammed out of the small blind for 15,554,257 and initial raiser Vlada "Vlada2108" Stojanovic called on the button.

Fernando "fviana" Viana: {k-Spades}{10-Spades}
Vlada "Vlada2108" Stojanovic: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}

Viana flopped best and dodged the two over cards and flushdraw on a board of {10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{7-Hearts}.

The Brazilian then min-raised the button and Chilaud ripped it in from the small blind, which Viana called after short hesitation.

Fernando "fviana" Viana: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Maxime "Daghemuneguu" Chilaud: {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}

The {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} board delivered no suckout and Viana skyrocketed up the leaderboard.
