Headlines from the weekend…
Following on from Brazil’s brilliant performance throughout the Spring Championship of Online Poker 2019 (during which the country won 36 SCOOP titles), they’ve now got yet another Sunday Million champ, too.
Former SCOOP champion Matheus “pimenta7” Pimenta is now $108,784 richer, having outlasted a large field to take it down with no deal. That’s his largest online cash to date, but his 2013 Brazil Series of Poker (BSOP) Super High Roller win for $161K remains his biggest career score for now.
Interestingly, there were four other Brazilian players on the Milly final table. Vamos!
A lot of poker’s biggest names are grinding live over in Las Vegas, but that doesn’t mean the High Roller Club has taken its foot off the gas.
Current no.2 in the world Andras “probirs’ Nemeth was back on the winner’s sheet this week, taking down the $530 Sunday 500 for $23,843.
The biggest winner in the HRC was Austria’s “WATnlos”, who added $47,008 to their bankroll after a victory in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller. That one had a stacked final table, including the likes of Finland’s “elmerixx”, Niklas “Lena900” Astedt, Talal “Raidalot” Shakerchi, and Ivan “Negriin” Luca.
