Hand #98: The action folded to Michael Souza in the small blind and he limped in. Sam Razavi raised to 700,000 from the big blind and Souza moved all in for 14,100,000. Razavi snap called turning over {q-Clubs}{q-Spades} and it was a classic coin flip with Souza holding {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}.

The dealer fanned the {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop and it was no help to Souza who's rail began to shout for an ace or a king. The turn {8-Clubs} was no help to Souza and he would need an ace or a king on the river to survive.

Razavi's rail erupted when the {2-Clubs} hit the rail and the massive pot was shipped Razavi's way.

Souza is the 4th place Event #21: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER finisher taking home his largest career tournament score of $402,614.

Hand #94: Michael Souza raised to 800,000 from the button, Justin Liberto jammed from the small blind, and Souza called to put Liberto at risk.

Michael Souza: {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Justin Liberto: {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

Souza had the preflop advantage and Liberto needed to improve in order to stay alive. The {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs} flop kept Souza in the lead, and although Liberto picked up a flush draw on the {5-Clubs} turn, the {K-Diamonds} river changed nothing, so Souza took the pot to end Liberto's deep run in this tournament.
