Fatima Moreira de Melo

PokerStars Team SportStar Fatima Moreira de Melo was one of the latest casualties of the tournament. With still about 22 big blinds, both Moreira de Melo and her opponent checked on a {q-}{q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop. She led out for a bet of 3,000 on the {3-Diamonds} turn and her opponent shoved. The former Dutch field hockey player turned over {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and mistakenly thought she was just fading a diamond for the flush after her opponent turned over {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}.

The {7-Spades} on the river was of no help to Moreira de Melo and only then after the chips were being sent to her opponent did she realize her opponent also had a queen in his hand as well along with a higher kicker. While Moreira de Melo had her opponent covered, she was left with just two big blinds and left the tournament room a hand or two later and was debating in the lobby about whether or not to enter one of the day's later events.
