Thiago Nishijima Eliminated in 18th Place ($35,003)

Thiago Nishijima

A short0stacked Thiago Nishijima moved all in for 100,000 from middle position and received a call from Kyle Julius on the button.

Nishijima: {Q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Julius: {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}

It was another flip and Nishijima's Brazilian contingent, of which there were quite a few including Andre Akkari, were on their feet cheering for their man. The {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop silenced things a bit, though the {6-Diamonds} turn did give Nishijima some counterfeit options. Unfortunately for him, and much to the dismay of his rail, the {J-Clubs} blanked on the river.

Nishijima's 18th-place finish marks his fifth cash at the 2012 World Series of Poker, four of which have been top 25-place finishes. An impressive performance by the Brazilian to say the least.
