Mike WatsonLeonardo Pires, the hyper-aggressive Brazilian who led the tournament for three consecutive days, didn't make it to the PCA Main Event final table. Despite the fact that Pires entered Day 5 with more than 25% of the chips in play, he still ended up hitting the rail already in 13th place for $45,860.

Pires made it to the top of chip counts by playing a lot of pots and, of course, winning most of them. On Day 5, he made big bets and big bluffs and lost nearly every pot. He bluffed his final chips in an all-in pre-flop situation with 43 off suite and ran into Mike Watson's pair of tens. The board ran out Q3K106 and it was game over 

Pires' eliminationfor Leonardo Pires. Many of his supporters (online and offline) seemed pretty disappointed with how things turned out on Day 5, but Pires himself left the poker table with a smile on his face.

Although many amateurs made it deep into the money, four of poker's best-known pros are among the final six players in the tournament. Canada's Mike "SirWatts" Watson will bring the chip lead to today's final table, where a $833,260 first-place prize is put aside for the last man standing. It will defiantly be a very thrilling final table with so many good players on it!

Leonardo Pires falls prey to the classic ending for this type of players. Hyperaggressive is a good style but had he incorporated different gears in his playbook he might have been on the final table. Going into the penultimate day with 25% chips and bluffing all of them away. Classic idiot with a stack. Good for the pros though.

There goes the Portuguese (Brazil's official language) representative... Well, just reading the news without knowing how he felt from the top with such big advantage just makes think a conclusion: being hyper-aggressive got its downs...

I am not blaming him 4 not playing this one more safely...
He went in to take down this tourney and not just getting into the money/onto the final table - I'd rather tip my hat off to him than the winner at the end tbh.
