Joao Simao
Joao Simao

Alex Foxen raised to 100,000 from the hijack and then called the 555,000 three-bet jam Joao Simao made from the button.

Joao Simao: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Alex Foxen: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Simao was dominated by Foxen and the {7-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} runout wasn't any help as it ended his tournament in 40th place for $24,655.
