Come Back of the Century?

Webjoker • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Joao Vieira got up from the table and told us he had 33,000, while minutes ago he had just 2,000 left. Vieira told us he had pushed his last 67,000 in holding {A-}{10-} suited, and was looked up by Dermot Blain with {J-}{J-}. The {J-}{8-}{5-}{10-}{3-} board didn't help Vieira and the Portuguese high roller was left with less than a small blind. Some miraculeus double ups later and he's back to 33,000. That's still just 5.5 big blinds, but could be the beginning of the comeback of the century.
