No-Limit Holdem

Joao Simao raised under the gun to 250,000 and it folded to Joni Jouhkimainen in the cutoff who announced a three-bet for 1,200,000, with around 750,000 chips behind. It came back to Simao who shoved and Jouhkimainen snap-called.

Joni Jouhkimainen: {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Joao Simao: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

Jouhkimainen, who final-tabled the same event last year, was in desperate shape for a double up, and the board ran out {6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{k-Clubs} to give the winning hand to Simao. Jouhkimainen was eliminated and took home a $54,313 cash for his efforts.
