Event #56: $10,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Vieira Eliminated by Ruzicka

BrandonBloom • Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Joao Vieira

On a {j-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Spades} flop with about 70,000 in the pot, Joao Vieira was in the big blind and check-called a 32,000 bet by Vojtech Ruzicka in the hijack.

Vieira checked the {4-Clubs} turn and Ruzicka jammed for Vieira's effective stack of about 170,000. Vieira pondered for several minutes before the clock was called. Before the tournament director got to the five-second countdown, Vieira put in the chips.

Joao Vieira: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Vojtech Ruzicka: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

Vieira was in rough shape and needed a jack, or a ten for a chop, but the {a-Diamonds} completed the board to send him to the payout desk.
