Lander Lijo shoved all in on the button and Joao Vieira called off with the effective stack in the big blind.

Joao Vieira: {a-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Lander Lijo: {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

It looked as if it was going to be a chop pot, especially after the flop came {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. That all changed when the {3-Hearts} hit the turn, leaving Lijo hoping to chop. It did not happen, however, with the river bricking out {6-Clubs} to hand Vieira the full double.

Vieira Getting Short

Cottrellmkw • Level 25: Blinds 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante

Joao Vieira limped on the button and Lander Lijo checked his option out of the big blind.

Lijo checked on the {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{j-Spades} flop and Vieira led out for 500,000. Lijo quickly called to see the turn.

The {8-Clubs} turn saw Lijo check for a second time. Vieira was in no mood to slow down and fired off another barrel, this time sizing up to 1,700,000. Lijo remained unconvinced and again called.

Both players checked on the {k-Spades} river and Lijo tabled {j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} to take down another pot.

There aren't many crueler ways to bust the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event than with pocket aces, especially when $10 million and the coveted gold bracelet are within reach.

That's exactly what happened to Philippe Souki about seven hours into Friday's final table. However, he did still receive $1,075,000 as quite a sizable consolation prize for eighth place.

Joao Vieira opened to 800,000 and Galen Hall shoved for 7,500,000 from the small blind. Lander Lijo shoved from the big blind and Vieira folded.

Galen Hall: {a-Spades}{2-Hearts}
Lander Lijo: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

Hall was absolutely dominated and the {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Spades} was no help as Lijo went way out in front.

The turn was the {4-Clubs} and the river was the {3-Clubs}, eliminating Hall in third place.

Decisions are now being made on what will happen heads up with eight minutes and 36 seconds remaining in the level.

Vieira Wins One Off Hall

Cottrellmkw • Level 24: Blinds 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

Galen Hall was on a hot streak when three handed play began but has since lost that momentum. Hall opened to 800,000 on the button and Joao Vieira defended out of the big blind.

Vieira check-called a continuation of 600,000 from Hall on a flop of {q-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}.

On the {5-Clubs} turn Vieira took over the betting lead, pushing 900,000 into the middle. Hall did not wait long to muck his holding, sending him slipping further down the chip counts.
