WSOP-C Rio Summary Day 8

The WSOP Brazil 2018 has come to an end. During the past 8 days, players from all corners of Latin America and the world came to the Belmond Copacabana Palace to take part in a new edition of one of the most popular competitions in Latin America. 

The last day offered nothing but moments of joy and thousands of emotions as four players were crowned at different events.

The most important prize went to Jordan Piva, who won the Main Event. After a formidable 3-hour heads-up match, this math professor beat the pro and took the R$ 1,000,000 prize home.

Marco Aurelio Alves was in the spotlight as well: after a two-day battle, he won the championship ring and the R$ 399,000 prize upon clinching the High Roller —the second biggest tournament in the series.

After four initial flights, the Monster Stack also received much attention from players on the past three days. This event featured 1,540 entries in total, which shattered the R$ 1 million guarantee. The winner was Federico Sturzenegger, who took the ring and the first prize (R$ 220,000) to Uruguay.

Finally, the 6-max was the only event to begin and end yesterday. This last competition in the series sponsored by partypoker LIVE featured 224 entries and the commanding figure of Lucas Fluk, who was able to overcome many difficulties. As a reward for his performance, he was awarded a World Series ring and R$ 112,500.
