Vieira Quickly Goes from Short Stack to Healthy

Joao Viera

Joao Vieira was on the verge of elimination recently but has surged back to a decent-sized stack after a pair of wins.

First, Vieira won a three-way pot versus Nathan Gamble and Wil Wilkinson, when he was all-in on the second post-draw betting round with just Gamble to beat after Wilkinson folded.

Vieira showed {9-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{4-} while Gamble was drawing to {5-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, but picked up a {6-} for a straight.

Shortly after, the same trio did battle again in an even bigger pot.

Vieira raised in the cutoff, Gamble three-bet the button, and Wilkinson cold-called from the small blind before Vieira also called.

Wilkinson drew one card, while his opponents drew two. Betting then got wild as Wilkinson bet and got raised by Vieira, Gamble called, and Wilkinson then put in a third bet which both opponents called.

Wilkinson stood pat while the others drew one. Again, Wilkinson led and got raised by Vieira. This time Gamble opted to fold, later saying he had made a rough eight. Wilkinson called.

Both remaining players then patted, and Wilkinson checked to Vieira, who bet. After a quick bit of thought, Wilkinson opted to fold, shipping the huge pot to Vieira.
