Joao Simao Eliminated in 4th Place ($341,095)

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

Joao Simao opened to 6,000,000 from the button and Mateusz Moolhuizen three-bet to 16,000,000 from the small blind.

Following nearly five minutes and after Anderson called the clock, Simao shoved for 55,000,000 total. Moolhuizen snap-called and the Brazilian knew what he was up against.

Joao Simao: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Mateusz Moolhuizen: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}

The flop came {j-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{a-Spades}, meaning only running straight cards could save Simao. The {4-Spades} sealed his fate and the {2-Diamonds} completed the board.

The bustout means that there will be a first-time WSOP bracelet winner.
