This time around, he went from a short stack to winner after a topsy-turvy final table that saw some of the shorter stacks make it to the end while some who came in with bigger stacks fell early on.

The day got started on a good note for Vieira as he flopped a set early on to win a pretty big pot and get among the big stacks. He also scored the first elimination when a dominating ace held against the ace-three suited reshove of Samuel "€urop€an" Vousden.

Vieira continued building from there, but start-of-day leader Michael "imluckbox" Addamo who scored a series of knockouts to reassert himself as co-favorite with Vieira. Addamo's typically swingy journey included some highs and lows but he seemed to be in good shape after busting Benjamin "bencb789" Rolle, who called this the "ultimate final table of death," in fifth place.

However, Addamo would go down in fourth after a very unlucky spot saw him make queens full only to run into the slowplayed aces full of Vieira after the latter limped blind versus blind.

Of course, the flip side was that it was a dream scenario for Vieira, who then had two-thirds of the total chips. From there, he had Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph and Mikita "fish2013" Badziakouski in a tough ICM situation, especially when they were even-stacked.

While Badziakouski would ultimately bust Rudolph to give himself a fighting chance, he just ran a pocket pair of fives into Vieira's stronger tens on the first hand of heads-up play to end things in a flash.
