Victor Sbrissa Wins LAPT Brazil Main For $255kVictor Sbrissa has won the 2013 Latin American Poker Tour Brazil Main Event, after defeating a huge field of almost 750 players to capture the title, and collect the $255,400 first place prize.

By the time the $4,000 buy-in Main Event reached its final table of eight, Team PokerStars Pro Leo Fernandez held a commanding chip lead, while his fellow PokerStars team mate Andre Akkari contributed further to the toughness of the final table.  Early on, however, Leo Fernandez then managed to double-up two of his opponents and before long he surprisingly found himself hitting the rail in 7th for $34,140.

Victor Sbrissa (6-6) subsequently eliminated Marcos Ximenes (3-3) in 6th ($47,266), before Daniel Murta (K-Q) did likewise to Andre Akkari in 5th for $64,335. Victor Sbrissa (8-8) then took care of Leonardo Brescia (K-Q) in 4th ($85,338), and after Daniel Murta sent Rafael Pardo home in 3rd ($115,481), the heads-up phase of the tournament got underway between the two remaining Brazilian players.

Sbrissa held the advantage going into heads-up and after whittling his opponent down to just 17BB, the final hand was played with Sbrissa (Q-4) and Murta (A-J) all-in on a J-Q-6 flop. The K and 3 on turn and river did nothing to change things and so Daniel Murta had to be contented with a runner-up finish worth $166,684, while Victor Sbrissa was crowned the champion.

The final table results were as follows:

1 Victor Sbrissa $255,400
2 Daniel Murta $166,684
3 Rafael Pardo $115,481
4 Leonardo Brescia $85,338
5 Andre Akkari $64,335
6 Marcos Paulo Ximenes $47,266
7 Leo Fernandez $34,140
8 Thiago Grigoletti $26,254
