Brazil has been crushing the first leg of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online, with Brazilian poker players winning five of the first fourteen events, taking down the coveted gold bracelets and huge cash prizes.

Poker is very popular in the South American nation, and their countrymen have made a very strong showing at the WSOP this year. Alongside the give champions were another two runner-up finishers, a few third places and half a dozen final tablists.

Only one other country – Poland – has seen more than one of its players win bracelets.

  • Finally the fifth bracelet for Brazil came when Renan Bruschi won Event #14 the $500 NLHE for $150,000.

Casinos to Online

Normally the World Series of Poker is held at a land-based casino in Las Vegas – usually the Rio casino – but this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic it has been held online, hosted by GGPoker.

Brazilian online poker pros have taken advantage of this and have been overrepresented in not only this tournament series but several major poker festivals throughout 2019, 2020 and 2021.

In June 2021 two Brazilians won titles in the XL Spring series on 888 Poker.

Brazil Gambling Elite

Early last month PokerStars team pro player Andre Akkari, himself hailing from São Paulo in Brazil, commented to Pokernews.com that Brazil is now home to an ‘online poker elite’. The professional live and online player who goes by the screenname AAkkari said the following:

“Brazil at the moment it’s where you can find some amazing players, some of which are among the top in the world,” says Akkari. “You have to keep your eyes on Rafael Moraes, Yuri Dzivielevski and Bruno Volkmann, and some others. We have the elite in online poker in Brazil!” – Andre Akkari

PokerStars ran a Brazilian Series of Poker (BSOP) special tournament series in 2021, the biggest online event in Latin America.

The Pocket Fives worldwide ranking has three poker players from Brazil in their top 10 – Bruno Volkmann, Renan Bruschi and Yuri Martins Dzivielevski.
