Only Few poker players in Brazil understand and talk about poker as clearly as Felipe Boianovsky. The theory of genius shows that talent can also work in practice and experienced a big day in his long career on Tuesday (31). With outstanding performance, “lipe piv” won the overall championship of SCOOP 2023 Main Event High.
Felipe leaves 587 players in the global poker elite without a chance at the title. Buy-in fee is $10,300. The Brazilian made history by winning the top event of the PokerStars Series for the first time. The rewards must also be impressive. Boyanowski earned a whopping $1,036,199 for the performance.
The million-dollar prize for the Brasilia player now includes Pedro Padilha, Allan Mello and France Fabiano Kovalski. The final table of the SCOOP Main Event High was also memorable for another Brazilian poker star. Paulo Brombim, aka “paulinho00”, a high-profile big name in recent years, also found success, earning $569,751 in third place.
With very deep structure, he went into the final table detailed decision. Brazil’s biggest rival for the trip was Laszlo Bujtas, “omaha4rollz”, who is used to making big money at the cash game tables. Boyanowski and Brobeam got off to a strong start in the decider and went into the four-handed game without panic.
Felipe assembled a big stack to challenge Bujtas, while Brombim waited for “DingeBrinker” to go down for a fourth-place raise. Estonian resistance slowed things down and ultimately hurt Paulo. After “DingeBrinker” went down, he was far behind the other two players in chips.
Brombim preflop – All in vs Felipe, AK vs 99. The ace came on the flop, but the board ended in a straight aces-to-five tie. Some time later, Paulinho was eliminated while trying to bluff “omaha4rolzz”.
Heads up is the difference between the Brazilian and the Hungarian A real battle between the two, both sides have a lot of leverage. The turn came when Boyanowski made a perfect turn after raising all-in on the flop to complete the straight. With 2657 on the board, “lipe piv” had 89, beating the opponent’s TT. A hero call with KQ helped widen the gap shortly after.
It was a matter of time before the champion became AT all-in with K9 preflop. The Ace on the flop and the T on the turn gave Felipe Boianovsky a historic victory.
