Brazilian poker officials continue to work hard to improve the country’s WSOP record. The Brazilian has already had a solid run in 2023, with Yuri Martins winning his third bracelet at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas, and two more final tables recently with Sérgio Braga and Vitor Coutinho.
Brazil was also represented on Day 2 in the Event #64 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack Tournament ($600 buy-in). Paulo Gini is one of the most famous Brazilians in this field. The Live star was one of the qualifiers and amassed 300,000 in chips for the tournament series.
The leader of the Brazilian team is Cassio Kienen. The player ended Day 1 with 488,000 in chips, 50th in the tournament chip count and more than $2 million in prize money. Another player who made good progress was Henry Fischer, who had 363,000 in chips on Day 2.
Several other representatives from Brazil qualified. They are: Daniel Rodrigues (328,000), Guilherme Santana (140,000), Arthur Campos (139,000), Felipe Phil (131,000), Igor Oliveira (108,000) and Lucas Da Silva (88,000).
Day 2 of the controversy will return this Thursday (29th) at 14:00 Brazil time. The day starts at level 18 with blinds of 5,000/10,000 and a big blind stake of 10,000. The remaining 543 players on the field also performed 10 blind levels. All participants have entered the $960 prize pool.
