Mike Jukich opened from the cutoff for 3,000,000 and Joao Simao shoved from the small blind for 14,700,000 which Jukich called.

Joao Simao: {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Mike Jukich: {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}

The flop came {9-Spades}{q-Hearts}{j-Clubs} to give Simao an open-ended straight draw and a slight statistical edge with his two overs.

He didn't have to wait long as the {k-Diamonds} gave the Brazilian the nuts and had Jukich drawing dead.

Simao is now back to over 32 million with his latest double up.
