Joao Simao Hits Three-Outer to Double Up, Zarrin the Short Stack

blaisebourgeois • Level 40: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 2,000,000 ante
Joao Simao

David Zarrin opened from under the gun to 4,000,000 and Joao Simao moved all-in for 19,400,000 which Zarrin called.

Joao Simao: {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
David Zarrin {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}

The {9-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop was no help for Simao but the {k-Hearts} on the turn gave the Brazilian the best hand but he still needed to dodge a heart.

The {6-Clubs} on the river denied the rest of the table a ladder of a little over $60,000 and made Zarrin the short stack.
