888poker’s ambassador Bruno Foster has won his first WSOP ring at the first WSOP Circuit, the WSOP Circuit Brazil, placing him among 14 other WSOP ring winners.
Bruno said “I have no words to describe what I am feeling right now. It was a tough tournament, tough final table, tough heads-up. I’m really happy to finally win a WSOP jewelry and it’s even more special because it happened in my backyard.”
The 888poker ambassador won Event #6 Giant Omaha, taking the R$112,000 prize. The tournament had 232 entries, with Team888 ambassador Bruno Kawauti taking 15th place for R$5,300.
When the final table started on Oct. 29, Foster faced off Rodrigo Garrido, the chip leader. There was a lot of action and, after a few hours, Garrido would bust in fourth; Andrey Lago would bust in third. That would leave the only Brazilian November Niner to go heads up with Olympic swimmer and medalist Fernando Scherer.
888poker’s ambassador Bruno Foster finished sixth in the WSOP APAC event in Australia. This win makes it his third WSOP final table. Still he is the first and only Brazilian who make a WSOP Main Event final table.
