Caio "Ez4ENCE" De Almeida Eliminated in 2nd Place ($1,072,428)

KaleGozer • Level 31: 2,500,000-5,000,000, 500,000 ante
The final hand

It took just two hands of heads-up for Daniel Dvoress to conquer his maiden WSOP bracelet. In the first hand, Dvoress and Caio "Ez4ENCE" De Almeida saw a {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop together. De Almeida checked, Dvoress bet 5,000,000, De Almeida check-raised to 13,000,000, Dvoress shoved and the Brazilian folded.

Left with just a little over 25M, those chips quickly flew in the middle in the subsequent hand. Dvoress beat him to the pot with a call.

Caio "Ez4ENCE" De Almeida: {k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Daniel Dvoress: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}

The {6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop left Almeida in need of an eight or a runner-runner. The {7-Hearts} turn opened up the straight draw as well, but after a lengthy peel, the river card came up short with the {3-Hearts} to eliminate De Almeida in second place. He'll also leave the tournament a millionaire; his runner-up finish was worth an astonishing $1,072,428.
