Due to the growing popularity of 5-Card Pot-Limit Omaha in Brazil, major poker tours have begun offering tournament slots only to players with knowledge of 5-Card Pot-Limit Omaha. One of the tournaments took place on Thursday (30th) at BSOP So Paulo, where ace player Caique Morais once again claimed the title.
Caique is a professional cash player who constantly travels the world in search of action, but only plays in tournaments. In fact, he did so. The pros from Nit Poker Team went all-in in heads-up play to win the majestic trophy and R$53,100. The competition entry fee is R$2,000.
Day one of the BSOP Sao Paulo Main Event was led by Alexandre Sako, with Anthony Barraqueiros in second place.
This is Carioca’s second major production in 2023. In February, he learned all about the basics of the game when he visited Rio de Janeiro to compete in the KSOP GGPoker tournament. This time he played the ubiquitous Omaha 4 and beat 79 other competitors.
As an expert in this technology, he stood out from the fierce competition and won the first place in the competition. Standing in his way at the final table were Fredwilliam Viana, Kleber Queiroz, José Thauerre, Murilo Figueredo, Daniel Maciel, Carlos Alberto Junior and Silvio Feiber. Except for others who give up over time.
Caique faced Fredwilliam Viana, who reached the final table for the second time with the help of his friends Pablo Menezes “pablito” and Paulo Pinto from Rio .
