Villa-Lobos: 'Brazil Could Be Second-Biggest Poker Market in the World'
Nicolau Villa-Lobos and Bruno Kawauti should probably be in Rio de Janeiro watching the World Cup but their insatiable desire for poker action has brought them all the way to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker. Poker is getting huge in Brazil and according to these two, it's going to get even bigger. Villa-Lobos and Kawauti both agreed that Brazil could host a World Series of Poker, and that it would be bigger than either WSOP Europe or WSOP Asia-Pacific. While poker continues to grow in their home country, both these members of Team 888poker continue to travel the world in search of big tournaments.
