for The decision day for the three editions of the SCOOP Main Event is one of the most important days of the year for poker players. Everyone dreams of getting there and being guaranteed a ridiculous amount of money. Players Gabriel Moura and Vinícius Correia realized that dream this Wednesday (31st).
There were 4,206 entrants over the four days of the Main Event Medium, with a buy-in of $1,050 and the Brazilian’s six-figure investment. Best place goes to Gabriel Moura, “aaurelio”, bronze medalist for $300,318. Vinícius, dubbed “Bretera,” finished fifth and won $150,159.
In a very close final table, Vinícius was eliminated in five hands against his compatriot Gabriel. This Brazilian matchup featured a preflop all-in of A7 against AK, in which “aaurelio” managed to hit the 8K6A3 board to win the hand and get a big chip.
Gabriel finished second with 4 but was very close and his opponent was very close to escaping elimination several times. The three innings of the match took a long time to form.
Gabriel went all out in a blind war with “moffo13” who nearly tied and saw chip leader “rolandinjo” take the lead. Gabriel’s AJ met his opponent’s TT and couldn’t find an out on 33253.
He ended up with 1.5 big blinds and even managed to get in on the next hand when 88TAA succumbed. 85 guarantees that he is full. But in yet another blind war with “moffo13,” Gabriel lost all his chips on K4 on the 22nd, ending his good tournament run.
