Lots of action going on in Brazil these days. As if going to Rio for the Olympics wasn’t enough, now you’ll have to repack your bags and head south from Rio to São Paulo for the Brazilian Series of Poker. This particular series has now been around since 2006 and has quickly become one of the hot tickets in the world of poker. In fact, according to its organizers, it is now the world’s largest poker tournament outside of Las Vegas.
PokerStars will be sponsoring the 2016 edition of the BSOP Millions with a total of 36 events. Held between Nov. 22 and Dec. 1 in the Golden Hall of the Sheraton WTC in São Paulo, Brazil. The anticipated highlight, as always, will be the Main Event and the winner will receive at least R$1,000,000 (approximately $300,000).
Other highlights of the BSOP Millions 2016:
- A Heads-Up tournament, with R$3,000 (almost $930) buy in and 64 players cap
- The NLH Mix-Max event will return after success in other legs of the BSOP.
- Event #19 is a NLH Turbo tournament with a R$500,000 (about $154,680) guaranteed prize pool.
- Super High Rollers with a buy in of R$15,000 (about $4,700). With a starting stack of 100,000 chips, the SHR will feature two starting days and 60-minute levels.
So book your reservations and make your way back to to the sweet land of Brazil (sugar is one of the country’s top exports). There will be lots more action, so make sure to check out the event schedule and get ready to compete in the biggest poker championship that Brazil has ever had. As always, remember that practice, practice, practice makes you a better player at the poker tables, wherever they may be.
