Nelson Dantas, one of our qualified players for the WSOP Main Event, just made his biggest cash out in a live event. Qualified for no more than $300 on Chilipoker.com, he just won over $40,000 finishing 236th out of 6,900 players, in the most prestigious tournament in the world.
Above average almost every day until day 4, he made it to day 5 with a stack around 279,000 chips, below average. He was happy and in the money.
Unfortunately, as he explains on his Facebook, he lost two big pots although he started favorite with AA, and then ended up losing a crucial coin flip, holding 33 vs AK.
236th for $40,654, the best ever live result for Nelsinho, who only had one Hendon Mob line until today, already in the WSOP Main Event two years ago -535th for $23,196-
We are very proud of him and we hope he will qualify for some more major tournaments on Chilipoker.com !
