Look at these!

Rodrigo Anacoretto

Performing well on a stage like KSOP GGPoker South America is already important; how about having two? Rodrigo Anacoretto, known as “Danone”, is one of the few players who can boast this. This was because he got off to a great start with a win in the warm-up event, and a few days later he also ended up in fourth place in the High Roller event on a very positive note. The two wins combined earned him R$580,000.

Pedro Neves

Two podium finishes – one of which ended in a knockout – has given him a gave him his impression of how productive the Portuguese star’s stage presence was. He entered the final table of the Super High Roller event as the chip leader, but failed to convert that lead into a title. Anyway: A few days later, he defeated Omaholic SHR in a heads-up match with star Dan Cates. This is an excellent milestone for Pedro Neves.

Bruno Nogueira

The KSOP GGPoker South America has been going very well for the player from Acre, but not necessarily because of eliminations or a series of leaderboards. Podium. Bruno Nogueira participated in the Monster Mystery KO 6-Max match and when he eliminated his opponent, he took out an envelope containing the largest mystery bounty ever on Brazilian soil, worth 250,000 reais Er – almost 300,000 reais as a prize for the winner. Certainly a piece of good luck that will never be forgotten.


“Shevii2k” walked away with two KSOP GGPoker South American Championship trophies – and it is undeniable that one of them was the only one in this tournament. It’s an invitation-only tournament, but it’s not without quality players on the field. In addition to the GGPoker star’s challenge, he also won a Kings Turbo and was broadcast live by streamers and players. This was definitely an unforgettable event.

Rafael Takeda

Another player to win two Riocentro trophies is Rafael Takeda – but only he really got his money’s worth in the last two campaigns days worth. First, he was eliminated from the latest edition of the KSOP GGPoker SA Kings Turbo on Tuesday, and the next day, Raphael returned to the lobby to cheer on another standout player in the high rollers, “Danone.” But he got a Mega KO on the last day and lo and behold, he got the win too, picking up two good prizes on his way home.

With top pair and a nut flush draw, Peterson called a 50,000-chip bet, only to see Abalos check-raise to 152,000. With a decision and in position, Carioca would rather simply call. Then he saw the perfect river. A completes the board and gives the Brazilian Flush Nut. Jeronimo Abalos became suspicious and slowed down to take a look.

Peterson didn’t care. With more chips in hand, he brought the Argentine into play and announced an all-in move of 475,000, which matched his opponent’s stack. Abalos immediately began to think, threw the time card forward, and pondered for a while. Peterson still seemed a little nervous and dropped some chips.

Soon after, Abalos decided to call and realized he was wrong. He opened with , which wasn’t enough to beat the Brazilian’s hand, so Peterson took the pot with over 1.4k in chips, handing over two 2KKs for the first time in the tournament. And the “so-called” Tyr is just a flying beetle. What a great pot!
