In addition to his historic performance at the 2023 WSOP, the Brazilian has caused problems for opponents in other series in Las Vegas. Early this morning, star Eduardo Silva confirmed he will be at the PokerNews Cup final at the Nugget Casino. With 3,100,000 in chips and about 10 BBS, he emerged in sixth place.
In order to trigger the title’s reputation, the professional from Belo Horizonte will have to make up for a big disadvantage. Argentina’s Felipe Olivieri currently leads with 30,825,000 in chips, ahead of double runner-up Vid Zagar (12,275,000), who was one of two $100,000 bounties.
The action in the tiebreaker will be even more exciting as the $50,000 bounty has yet to be found.
