BRAZIL’S MATHEUS “pimenta7” PIMENTA WINS THE MILLY

Following on from Brazil’s brilliant performance throughout the Spring Championship of Online Poker 2019 (during which the country won 36 SCOOP titles), they’ve now got yet another Sunday Million champ, too.

Former SCOOP champion Matheus “pimenta7” Pimenta is now $108,784 richer, having outlasted a large field to take it down with no deal. That’s his largest online cash to date, but his 2013 Brazil Series of Poker (BSOP) Super High Roller win for $161K remains his biggest career score for now.

Interestingly, there were four other Brazilian players on the Milly final table. Vamos!


HIGH ROLLER CLUB VICTORY FOR ANDRAS “probirs” NEMETH

Current no.2 in the world Andras “probirs’ Nemeth was back on the winner’s sheet this week, taking down the $530 Sunday 500 for $23,843.
