Both Mattos and Putz were near the top of chip count when the last player reached the final table. Another Brazilian, Pedro “mrsweets29” Madeira, led the chips to the final table. Mattos and Putz are second and third respectively on chips.
There were simultaneous eliminations with two tables remaining which sent Manuel “John Mcclean” Saavedra home in ninth and Daniel “Razer2311” Rezaei over the fence in 10th. Half of the final table is a Brazilian with Fabiano “MarkyAurielio” Kovalski sitting in fourth with chips as the pitch merges into one table.
Madeira looked like he was escaping with the tournament as he scored the first three eliminations from the final table.
He excelled in chips by KO Yiannis “GreekFreaker” Liperis in eighth. AQ Madeira defended against the A-9 Liperis. Liperis scored $ 43,570 for its deep ride. He was his advantage when he took pocket kings against 2-2 Kovalski. Both got chips in the middle preflop and Kovalski was drawing dead at a time when Maderia made the house full.
In a blind battle, Madeira calls from Kevin “withered350” Gibson with pocket sixes. They defended against Gibson K-4, which is almost double the number of Mattos, who are still in second place.
By eliminating fifth-placed Antonio “nanqtf” Pedro, however, Mattos barely led the chip. Pedro moved on from a minor blid with a score of 2-2 and was called by Mattos’ A Heart Suits10 Heart Suits. A card as coming flopped and Pedro never improved. He was the first player to land a six-digit number at the final table, taking home $ 114,004 for his efforts.
Madeira broke Nethanel “natykkk” Klein in fourth, another chip advantage with three hands, but short-handed poker is where the run falls apart.
Most of it consisted of undisputed pots, Mattos moved to the chip lead, Putz chipped into second, while Madeira slid to third.
Putz won the fold with his AK against Madeira’s pocket eight for third and led a decent chip to the heads-up game against Mattos.
Putz increased the chip lead to 4: 1, but Mattos got some well-timed improvements to overcome the deficit and move to a small advantage of his own. Finally, Mattos got the job done when Putz’s last 10 blinds were in the middle at 9-8, but couldn’t get over Mattos’ K-6.
