Simao got his hands on another top prize by coming out on top of a 66-strong field in the $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Heater. Again, the final table was a star-studded affair, and again Simao came out on top.

“Driekus888” and Michael Addamo‘s time at the final table was limited, and the waters grew less shark-infested with the eliminations of Zhao Zi long, Daniel “croce 61” Croce, and Chris Klodnicki.

Simao found himself heads-up against Lars “Babyccino” Nystedt after Aleksandr “[email protected]” Kirichenko crashed out in third. The hot-running Simao relieved Nystedt of his stack and banked a $199,81 top prize, leaving Nystedt to console himself with a $10,578 payout.
