Hand #97: Joao Vieira raised to 250,000 on the button and saw Jamie O'Connor three-bet all in for 3,000,000. Vieira asked for the count, and when the dealer confirmed the amount, he called.

Joao Vieira: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Jamie O'Connor: {a-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

Board: {5-Spades}{9-Spades}{4-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

O'Connor had the preflop lead and held his advantage on the flop. However, Vieira paired his queen on the turn to flip the scenario in his favor and when the river fell safely for the Portuguese man, O'Connor's elimination was confirmed.

O'Connor took away $317,956 for his third-place finish and secured his best live score in the process.
