Lijo Cracks Vieira's Aces To Survive

Cottrellmkw • Level 23: Blinds 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante
Lander Lijo

Lander Lijo moved all in for 3,000,000 on the button and Joao Vieira called out of the small blind. Galen Hall folded his big blind and Lijo was officially at risk.

Lander Lijo: {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Joao Vieira: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

Lijo was in bad shape with little hope of survival. The {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{k-Hearts} flop did not change much but the {4-Hearts} turn gave Lijo hope with a heart draw. That draw came in on the {5-Hearts} river, prompting wild celebrations from his rail. To rub salt in the wound for Vieira, Galen Hall revealed he had folded two hearts.
