Ivan Limeira finishes in eighth place in WSOP Spring Circuit Event 16 after missing the flip.

Ceará has now seen two consecutive players reach the final table of the WSOP Spring Tour. Eighth-place finisher in Event 16: $1,500 NL Hold’em Bounty was Ivan Limeira. In all, he made $27,205.

Ivan’s last move, an open push for 8 large blinds, left him seemingly in last place. Only “sickerwayner” paid out, with a tabled four of a kind. Ivan’s A6 had him dominated, and the K10859 board gave him no opportunities to win.

Two hours later, a Russian by the name of Arsenii Malinov cried out in triumph. He not only received the golden ring, but also $198,708.

Ivan and Fabio Freitas made it to the Big Showdown. The Sao Paulo recreational only had a brief stay in the top 20, however. This time he added $6,812 to his savings.

A total of $1,404 players participated in Event 16, which resulted in a prize pool of $2,700.
