$10,500 High Roller: Ethan "Rampage" Yau Eliminated in 4th Place ($77,000)

Dec 4, 2023

Joao Simao completes the small blind to 60,000, and WPT Global Ambassador Ethan “Rampage” Yau checks his option in the big blind.

The flop comes Club 7Diamond 5Diamond 2, Simao checks, Yau bets 60,000, and Simao check-raises to 160,000. Yau uses one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a minute before he calls.

The turn card is the Club J, and they quickly get it all in — it looks like Simao moves all in and Yau snap-calls all in for about 550,000 with Heart ADiamond A.

Simao turns over Diamond 6Diamond 4 for an open-ended straight draw with a gutshot straight-flush draw. Yau needs his aces to hold to stay alive.

The river card is — the Diamond 3!

Simao rivers a six-high straight flush to win the pot and eliminate Yau in fourth place.

Joao Simao  –  2,140,000  (36 bb)
Ethan “Rampage” Yau  –  Eliminated in 4th Place  ($77,000)
