4.45pm: Matthias Habernig wins LAPT Florianopolis.
Dayan Vardanega re-raised Matthias Habernig's preflop bet to 395,000 in what was to be the last hand of the day.

Habernig called, and a A♠7♦[10h] flop hit the felt. Vardanega bet 480,000 and Habernig called, bringing the Q♦ on the turn. Action was about to get spicy.

Vardanega checked and Habernig bet 650,000. Vardanega responded by moving all-in for his remaining 2 million chips. This produced the last action of the day: Habernig's call.

Vardanega showed A♥7♠, but Habernig showed A♣[10c] for the better two pair. The Brazilians in the crowd jumped up and began to chant for a seven. Their wishes weren't answered as a J♦ came on the river, eliminating Dayan Vardanega in 2nd place. The runner-up, and last Brazilian in the tournament, will take R$251,700.

This makes Matthias Habernig the newest LAPT champion in the world! His reward will be R$435,000 and the prestigious title of LAPT Florianopolis champion.
