Thiago Nishijima and Pescatori came out victorious - WSOP 2015
The 2015 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has currently experienced a truly eventful Day 26. The day was marked by the Poker Player's Championships kick-off and the successful come-back of Doyle Brunson in Rios poker room. The series Day 26 was also a glory day for Max Pescatori and Brazils Thiago Nishijima. Both men claimed 1st-place finish. Pescatori was the last man standing in the Event # 41, $ 10,000 buy-in Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Championship. He won his second bracelet this season. His win also allowed him to grab home $ 292,158 of cash. Recall that the Italian Pirate now enters the close circle of 4-time bracelet winners, the likes of Bobby Baldwin and Amarillo Slim.
The Brazilian poker pro Thiago Nishijima, for his part, owed his gold bracelet to his victory in the Event # 38, the $ 3,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em. The 2012 WSOP Main Event runner-up Jesse Sylvia had tried everything to cut his run but the Brazilian man was too tough to knock out. By sending Jesse to the rail, Thiago found himself facing against Sotirios Kouyoupas in the heads-up. The battle lasted about two hours. This time, the Brazils Thiago came out victorious and was awarded his biggest ever earning: the top prize of $ 546,843. The festival is still in its full swing at the Rio Grandio with the result of the Event# 40, the $ 1,000 buy-in Seniors Championship, in the wait. Justin Tseng is leading the way in chip count. By all accounts, it is Steve Gee who remains the favorite title contender heading to the final table. Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Steeve Gee is armed with 350,000 chips less than the chip leader.
