The MILLIONS Online KO Series at partypoker Sees Another Brazilian Poker Champion
All good things come to an end, as they say, and this week saw the close of partypoker’s successful MILLIONS Online KO Series which, after countless adventures that typify what makes real money online poker so enjoyable, saw the crowning of the Main Event champion.
If you tune into the latest news at PokerListings from time to time you might have noticed that Brazil is becoming a global force in poker, with poker players from the country that for decades has been associated with soccer picking up more than their fair share of titles.
The latest Brazilian superstar whose name will now be added to the poker history books is Brunno Botteon who, after battling through a field of 1,070 opponents, succeeded in taking down the $530 buy-in $500,000 GTD MILLIONS Online KO Main Event. When the play had finally drawn to a close, 162 players were paid, with Botteon’s share of the eventual total prize pool of $535,500 being a juicy $73,417 - a worthwhile reward to add to the bragging rights afforded those who win such prestigious events. Here’s how the Final Table looked:
|6||Steven Van Zadelhoff||Malta||$625||$7,775||$8,400|
|7||Cassandra Charles||United Kingdom||$5,144||$5,705||$10,849|
With each of the nine finalists at the final table guaranteed at least $3,569 for reaching the business end of the event, plus the bounties they had accumulated along the way, there was a lot of money to play for as well as the title of 2023 MILLIONS Online KO Main Event champion. The prospect of a female champion ended with the elimination of Cassandra Charles of the United Kingdom in seventh place, although a consolation of $10,849 isn’t to be sniffed at!
We’re getting used to Brazilians popping up at final tables, and this was no exception, with the countrymen filling three of the top four places (note two players from the tiny island of Malta, too!). Botteon and fellow Brazilian Henrique Coutinho ended up as the last two standing, with the latter having to ‘settle’ for $42,616 as the runner-up.
