De Almeida gets there

In the previous hands, Daniel Dvoress kept up his aggression to pick up more pots to move up to 150M in chips. With Dvoress now opting to fold first to act, Alejandro "pepealas" Caridad took the opportunity to shove all in for 98,453,870 covering all remaining players. Caio "Ez4ENCE" De Almeida called all in one seat over for 9,717,092 total.

Alejandro "pepealas" Caridad: {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
Caio "Ez4ENCE" De Almeida: {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

It appeared to be all over for De Almeida after the {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop and {a-Clubs} turn, but the {8-Spades} river was one of the three outs he needed to escape elimination.

After the hand, Dvoress won two more pots uncontested worth 8M each.
