WCOOP: Brazilians Dominate Podium, Take One Title

0
Brazilians took five of the nine podium spots in Tuesday’s WCOOP action

Brazilians have made a habit out of taking more than their fair share of COOP prize pools over the last few years. On Tuesday players from Brazil took all three podium positions in one event and took two of the three podium positions in another one.

Brazilian ‘THE ONLY SON’ topped the 2,678-player field in Event #54 High (Six Max No Limit Hold’em Progressive KO) to win $39,161.94 + $18,814.71 in bounties. Right behind him in second place were two fellow countrymen. Douglas ‘Dowgh-Santos’ Ferreira Souza finished as runner-up fro $27,285.82 + $1,601.57 in bounties while Gustavo ‘PIUlimeira’ Goto took home $19,012.00 + $10,994.46 in bounties for finishing third.

Dutch pro ‘DeuceofDuc0′ managed to spoil the Brazilian party by winning Event #54 High ($215 Six Max No Limit Hold’em Progressive KO) for $119.587.54 after a heads-up chop. Brazilians Rafael ‘GM_VALTER’ Moraes and Rodrigo ‘SELOUAN1991’ Selouan finished second and third. The Brazilians weren’t done there though. ‘PLF111’ came in fifth for $34,563.48.
