Many Brazilians are chasing glory in Las Vegas, especially at the WSOP. However, some people also take advantage of other tournament series at other casinos to try their luck. That’s what Fabiano Kovalski and Carlos Henrique (or “Carlos.Rox”) did when they entered the main event of the Wynn Summer Classic.
The $3,500 buy-in, $4,000 guaranteed contest attracted a huge number of entries, with 2,231 entrants, but now only 45 entrants are vying for the million-dollar prize. That included Fabiano Kovalski, who had 1,980,000 in chips on Day 3.

The game will resume this Saturday at 16:00 (Brasilia time). The blinds are back at 30,000/60,000 and the blind stakes are high. The prize pool is expected to be $25,997. The future champion will leave the millionaire with $1,002,768 in his pocket.
