After overcoming a record field of 4,142 tickets during the event of the Brazilian Series of Poker Millions, the Peruvian player Sebastian Gaviño managed to win a Platinum PokerStars Pass by winning his compatriot Gabriel Finetto, the favorite, after reaching an agreement.
The event that brings the most participation in a poker field in South America and Brazil, also guaranteed better prizes online for the winner due to the additional weight of the Platinum Pass on the line.
Gaviño, who won $ 31,757 when he won the Finetto prize, earned an additional $ 30,000 with the Platinum Pass, which almost doubles his earnings. To this we must add his entry of 22,500 euros in the important event in Barcelona, where the Peruvian will be six nights accompanied by a guest and has the expenses covered by 1,250 euros.
The hand that secured Gaviño’s path to Barcelona was the one in which he ended up dragging in five hands. The Peruvian who had a pair of aces went all-in along with two more players and at the end of the hand he won the pot with 75% of the chips in play. Gaviño and Finetto reached an agreement that ended up winning in chips which brought down the local favorite and advanced to Barcelona. The Peruvian received the title from Andre Akkari and Chris Moneymaker.
“I really wanted to win the Platinum Pass for the PokerStars Players Championship in Barcelona, and thank God, my dream came true. This victory is the best thing that has happened in my life,” Gaviño told PokerStars.
Gaviño will join in Barcelona six other winners, who aspire to appear in that event. In the PSPC so far several rookie players have been able to advance to the final event, which comes with a cumulative higher than last year.
The PSPC tour will have its next stop in the hands of Chris Moneymaker, who will be in Florida on Sunday, December 15 to deliver the crown to the last winner of the Road to PSPC award. So in the anteroom of Christmas there will be another happy winner with a pass to Barcelona, who will see his dreams fulfilled before the New Year.
