November Niner Bruno Politano Wins WSOPC Brazil Festival Event

One of Brazil’s most popular poker players, Bruno Politano, has just won a career first WSOP Circuit gold ring after taking down Event #6 of the WSOPC Brazil Festival for R$112,000 (US$34,690). The tournament series got underway in Brazil on October 26th, with 14 gold rings up for grabs, and this week Politano managed to outlast 232 players at the R$2,300 Giant Omaha event to heap further accolade on himself, and his sponsored site 888poker.
On the final stretch, Bruno Foster claimed the title after overcoming Fernando Scherer, a Brazilian Olympic swimmer who in 1996 and 2000 won  bronze medals for his country, and later commenting on his victory, the Brazilian pro said:
“I have no words to describe what I am feeling right now. It was a tough tournament, tough final table, tough heads-up. I’m really happy to finally win a WSOP jewelry and it’s even more special because it happened in my backyard.”
Bruno Politano now boasts $1,330,886 in live earnings to go with the $333,921 he has won online playing under the screen name Foster18. Politano became a household name in Brazil amongst poker fans after he progressed through to the 2014 WSOP Main Event final table, despite at the time the then shop owner describing himself as not a pro. The Brazilian subsequently managed an 8th place finish in Las Vegas worth $947,172, with the tournament eventually won by Swedish pro Martin Jacobson for a cool $10 million.
That same year, Bruno “Foster18” Politano became a member of Team 888poker, where he joined a group of brand ambassadors which included fellow countrymen Nicolau Villa-Lobos and Bruno Kuwaiti. Describing the vibrant poker scene in his native Brazil, Politano explained at the time:
“Brazil is a community of brothers. Everybody supports everybody. Brazilian guys rail for each other, pray for each other. If you are good, everybody’s good.”
