  1. Joao Simao has been #1 on PocketFives and has long been considered one of the most successful online poker players ever. On Monday, the Brazilian added to his resume and his legacy when he navigated through the final 20 players to his first World Series of Poker bracelet in WSOP Online $1,111 Caesars Cares event. The second day of action began with 20 players remaining from a 1,584 runner field that built the prize pool to $1,759,824 with $111 of each buy-in going to the Caesars Cares charity, which provides financial assistance for Caesars employees impacted by the COVID pandemic. Peter Raimondi and Le Fang started the final table with the two shortest stacks and spent the first 45 minutes of the final table doing their best to avoid being the first one out. Raimondi ultimately became the ninth place finisher. With blinds at 80,000/160,000 (20,000), Tom Shaham raised to 320,000 from UTG with [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"]. Action folded to Raimondi in the small blind and he moved all in for 725,372 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="qc"] and Shaham called. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4h"] flop gave Shaham an even firmer grasp on the hand but the [poker card="tc"] turn gave Raimondi a Broadway draw with just the river to come. The [poker card="as"] river was no help and the Canadian was eliminated in ninth place. Two hands later, Fang shoved from UTG for his last 739,228 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"] and Simao called from his immediate left with [poker card="ah"][poker card="jc"]. Fang could only watch as the board ran out [poker card="6d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="qh"] to signal the end of his tournament in eighth place. After losing most of his stack in a battle of the blinds, Jinlong Hu was left with just four big blinds. Hu moved all in for 661,394 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="td"] and Andras Nemeth called from the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="8d"]. Hu found a dream [poker card="kd"][poker card="tc"][poker card="3h"] flop to be in perfect position to double up. The [poker card="as"] turn and [poker card="8d"] river combined to form a nightmare runout for Hu and he was eliminated in seventh after Nemeth went runner-runner to make a better two pair. Unfortunately for the former #1-ranked Nemeth, that was the end of his run good. Just 45 minutes after he busted Hu, Nemeth was on the wrong end of a bad beat. Simao raised to 500,000 from the hijack with [poker card="6c"][poker card="6d"] before Nemeth moved all in from the button for 3,197,295 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"]. The flop came [poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4s"] to give Simao an open-ended straight draw. There was no waiting around as the [poker card="3d"] turn completed the straight and left Nemeth drawing dead to the [poker card="7h"] river and was out in sixth. Espen Sandvik had more than double the next biggest stack at the table when he picked up the next elimination. Sandvik shoved on the button for 15,575,394 with [poker card="2d"][poker card="2s"] and Ilya Yakunin called all in for 6,542,084 with [poker card="tc"][poker card="th"]. Yakunin was in line to double up into the chip lead after the [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"][poker card="8s"] flop, but the [poker card="2h"] turn gave Sandvik a full house and when the [poker card="3h"] fell on the river, Yakunin was out in fifth. On the very next hand, Simao raised to 600,000 from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="qd"]. Roman Hrabec shoved for 4,837,065 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"] and Simao called. Hrabec couldn't connect with the [poker card="9s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="3s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="7h"] runout and was sent to the rail in fourth place. Three-handed play lasted 21 minutes with Israel's Shaham doing everything in his power to stay alive long enough for one of the two big stacks to make a misstep. Unfortunately, that's not how things panned out. Shama moved all in for 5,253,186 on the button with [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"] and Sandvik re-raised to 12,256,372 with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"] to force Simao to fold. The [poker card="td"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4d"] flop gave Shaham a few extra outs. The [poker card="7s"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river ended up giving Sandvik a ten-high straight to eliminate Shaham in third place. Sandvik had 27,810,764 of the 39,550,050 chips in play when heads-up action got underway. Simao battled back to nearly even when the Brazilian picked up a pot worth nearly 37,000,000 chips when he made a king-high flush on a [poker card="jd"][poker card="ts"][poker card="7d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3d"] board. Sandvik had moved all in on the river and Simao tanked before calling with the second-nut flush only to find out Sandvik had been bluffing. The tournament was over on the very next hand. Sandvik moved all in for 2,634,456 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"] and Simao called with [poker card="qc"][poker card="tc"]. The flop came [poker card="td"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3s"] to give Simao top pair. Neither the [poker card="7d"] turn or the [poker card="jc"] river were able to keep Sandvik alive and he was eliminated in second place to give the highly-decorated Simao his first WSOP bracelet.
