The final day of WCOOP 2023 was an emotional one for Brazilian Poker. After winning the Main Event Mid-Level and Low-Level races, the four stars advance to the decider of the final event: Event #105-H (NLHE Super Tuesday, $1,050 single rematch). Eduardo Silva and Marlon Pinto were outstanding. The pair finished on the podium on their debut in the series.
Eduardo was the best Brazilian player, finishing second out of 302 competitors. He made a small trade with his friend Patrick Leonard in heads-up play and pocketed $44,929. Marllon Pinto won the bronze medal, earning $31,973. Pablo Brito finished fifth for $17,993 and Lucio Lima was eliminated in ninth place for $6,147.
Marllon is the first player in the tournament One of the most interesting stories because when the FT was founded he was the last one with leverage and he managed to get back to form. The Pará native was down to just three big blinds at one point and quit after winning two coin tosses. The third big blind was supposed to be heads-up with Leonard, but Eduardo Silva doubled up.
Soon after, Marllon was eliminated with A3 against 99, so the Englishman’s heads-up came up between two long-time players, the famous “Eduardo850” and “pads1161”. The duel between mentor and student is called mentor. Patrick maintained a good lead and eventually took the championship. The final scene is AJ going all-in preflop against T7 on 2K3J8. This semifinal is worth $54,505.
