One One of the most popular tournaments for Las Vegas players in the early days of the WSOP was Event #03, the popular $1,000 Mystery Millions. With multiple qualifiers, the number of entries is sure to be high and some Brazilians have already managed to qualify for the competitive sequence.
An example is Dan Almeida, partner and coach of the Midas Poker Team, who played in Day 1B of the tournament and took chips at the end of 22 blind levels. He finished with 295,000 in chips, 129th out of 146 qualifiers. The second qualifier was well-registrated with 2,957 entrants.
Remember, last year Dan Almeida was one of the winners of the $100,000 prize. His partner, Ramon Kropmanns, is another partner who has won six figures in the same event. The pair also reached the final table of the tournament.
The lead is in the hands of Shaun Davis with 2,475,000 in chips. Max Kruse (1,560,000), Mike Sowers (1,325,000), Martin Jacobson (1,180,000), Asher Conniff (1,020,000), Ankush Mandavia (1,000,000), Benny Glaser (635,000) and Dan Shark (490,000) are some of the eligible funny name. p>
