Lucio "WizardOfAz" Lima Adds First Bracelet After Shipping Event #9 for $91,205

• Nível 52: 1,250,000-2,500,000, 300,000 ante

It took just under nine hours to determine a winner in Event #9: $525 Superstack Turbo Bounty and when the last artist of the night put down the mic, it was Lucio "WizardOfAz" Lima sitting in the winner's circle, topping the 2,229 player field. He earned his first World Series of Poker bracelet, along with $91,025 in prize money.

Lima began the final table third on the leaderboard and looked to have less experience at this level than the rest of the field. But the Brazilian kept focus and made impeccable decisions en route to his first WSOP bracelet. It was no easy feat, having to best some great players and one especially talented was Anson Tsang who was hunting for his third bracelet.

Tsang had the lead to begin the final table and started heads-up as a big favorite. Lima quickly doubled and wore Tsang down afterward. The final hand saw Lima jam pocket threes on the button and Tsang call for almost an even stack with ace-five. A window ace looked good but a three fell behind, giving Lima a set. The turned sealed it for Lima and Tsang had to settle for runner-up.

Action of the Day

The late registration ended at the beginning at level 19 and a total of 2,229 entry slips were sold, accumulating a $1,114,500 prize pool which had 316 players set to make the money, getting at least $669 for a min-cash. Once the bubble popped the usual onslaught of short stacks came forth and in no time just nine were left, all guaranteed at least $5,139 with the eventual champ taking home $45,796 plus all bounties collected and their own.

Once the final table had been reached it was Tsang sitting on top of the leaderboard, in search of his third WSOP bracelet. Krzysztof "ZryjGruz" Dulowski picked up quickly tho, sending the first casualty to the rail when he cracked the kings of William "BigCharles" Romaine with three jacks. Shortly after it was Daisuke "REDJOE" Ogita taking an exit when he ran his ace-ten into the big slick of Lima, sending a hefty bounty over to the eventual champ.

Yngve "IAMWILLIAM" Steen ran his short stack as long as he could, but ultimately he found sevens and jammed, only to run into the aces of Stanislav Kuvaev, and he took an exit in seventh place. Fan-favorite Joaquin Melogno took an exit next when he called of his stack on a queen-high board with a pair of jacks. Lima held a queen and took down another bounty,

Dulowski took down the next two bounties, busting Kuvaev and Johnathon "Resolve" French which left just three. The big shift happened when Lima called his stack with a pair of sixes and was against the ace-queen of Dulowski. Sixes held and Dulowski shoved his short stack in with king-queen, Tsang called with ace-four. Neither hit a thing and Tsang pulled with his ace-high to drop Dulowski from contention.

Heads-up was heavily in favor of Tsang but Lima quickly found a double with king-jack against ace-rag. It took just a round more and Lima was in the lead. Tsang never retook the lead and ultimately was eliminated in second, when his ace-five failed to best the pocket treys of Lima who flopped a set. Tsang pulled in a combined $66,918 for his runner-up finish, falling just short of a third bracelet.

That wraps it up for the PokerNews live coverage of this event but tune in throughout the series for updates on all of the exciting tournaments that are slated.
