Alex Livingston praises KSOP GGPoker South America...

Alex Livingston, bracelet holder and third place finisher in the 2019 WSOP Main Event, is another foreign player to join KSOP GGPoker South America. The Canadian is very dedicated to the sport and has competed in dozens of games in the sport. He gave an interview to Mundo Poker to explain his decision to come to Brazil.

“I was talking to Felipe over dinner with David Baker, Mark Gregorich and other mixed gamers and he mentioned this event. I love traveling there.” Play poker. Since I was visiting new places and experiencing new cultures while completing this massive event that cost R$100,000, I decided to come here and see what it would be like,” he revealed.

Arrived at the huge Riocentro’s KSOP GGPoker South America surprised experienced and well-traveled professionals with its 22,000 square meters of lobby space. “This event is very cool. It’s unlike any other poker room I’ve ever seen. It’s like a large esports arena or convention center. It’s cool and works really well,” Alex said.

One comment from a Canadian in the conversation mentioned Brazilian food. Livingston plays a lot of cash games, and the hotel has an indoor lounge Free meals were offered. He visited several local restaurants, but the one that caught his eye was the famous Sushi Leblon in Rio de Janeiro’s trendiest neighborhood.

“The food was very good. I only ate in the VIP lounge here, but I’ve had local food a few times and it tasted good. Interestingly, one of the best meals I had on this trip was at a Japanese restaurant. Sushi leblon. It was so good I had “the best dessert of my life” there.

Alex Livingston won a WSOP bracelet last year

Passionate Brazil The ethnic characteristics of ancestry and openness attracted the attention of Canadians. He lamented that many Brazilians couldn’t communicate in English but made comments about the country’s players.

“Honestly, the players are very nice and lively. I really like the atmosphere here.” It seems that people really enjoy playing poker and they express their feelings in a friendly way . Instead of rubbing people’s joy on their faces, they show that they are happy. Everyone shakes hands as they are eliminated.

Livingston, who is used to playing in the United States, was asked if he thought any difference in performance occurred between recreational players in Brazil and the countries that host the WSOP every year. “I’m not sure.” I think they are different styles. Players here are more willing to fight for the pot. But there are all categories of players here. “Just like in the United States, there are weaker players, there are really good players, and there are some average players,” he said.

Alex at the KSOP during the Mundo Poker broadcast Playing against Léo Rizzo on the GGPoker South American TV table, it ended in a draw without even getting an all-in preflop with AK over the São Paulo player’s A6. He talks about Rizzo’s performance at the start of the R$100,000 Super High Roller and what it’s like to play with the energetic casual player.

“Unfortunately, I didn’t see his “Phil Hellmuth entry” because I signed up late, but I loved playing against him. When he won the bottom with “Pow, Pow, Pow” He was a lot of fun when it came to the pool. “Obviously he played a lot of hands and when you play big buy-in it’s great to have a guy with that style at the table, but he was a lot of fun. ”

Speaking of Brazilian pro players, Livingston noted that Yuri Martins and Mojave are friends and mentioned that during his weeks at the GGPoker KSOP in Rio de Janeiro Another national star caught his attention.

“Yuri is my friend, but he is not here. The Mojave is a friend of mine too. There were a lot of good players here, I don’t know all the names, but now I remember Felipe Bojanowski. He’s a great player. I’d like to remember more names, but poker is really growing in Brazil. After a lot of hard work and coaching, there is now a solid base of top players. “

In the end, the star said he would very much like to come back next year, praising the organization of the event but making one request.

“In most respects, everything was fine very good. I hope they do at least one more big buy-in event next year. More R$25,000 and R$50,000 tournaments would be great. The organization is great and it’s nice that the hotel is right next to the lobby. “The dealer was great, I have nothing to complain about,” he concluded.

Color Up:In poker tournaments, it is common for organizations to perform periodic “color ups” of tournament chips. This means that as blinds progress, lower value, redundant and unusable chips are removed from circulation and replaced with new values.

These suit increases occur under certain circumstances where a chip can be completely replaced by another chip of higher value: if the bet at the new blind level is 1,000 points, then 100 chips are not The minimum chip is again 1,000 chips. To do this, the organization uses breaks to collect large amounts of small chips and exchange them for smaller amounts of higher-value chips (e.g., 50 of 100 for one of 5,000).

This is known as the appearance of painting new color chips on the table, as mentioned above, these chips represent new and higher values, thus avoiding the unpleasantness of low denomination chips of excess.

Monday snacking at the .coms, Amadi invites

Monday snacking at .com, on Amadi's invitation

The MTT landscape is changing. Top buy-in tournaments have become social but lost their luster, and events like the Winamax series €2 GIANT had more than 130,000 entries on the closed market.

For example, the level of regulars used to be hit by Big $109, and to play a $500 or $1,000 tournament, you’d have to wait for a holiday or a very special occasion like Super Tuesday or Thrill Thursday. Professionals can now choose from a variety of tournaments ranging from $250 to $1,050 per day. They are no longer the exception but the norm, and their prices have met the same fate.

That’s why today, by old standards, there are serious doubts about the newsworthiness of a day, as we were able to record four important results, three victories in favor of the Reds . However, if Adrian Mateos hadn’t posted a big/small bounty in his tournament, no one would have reached the minimum bounty according to the unwritten rule of “five numbers on the front page”.

The classic opening of the conference story must lead us to GGPoker , where Presi qualified for the $11,665 USD Qualifier and became the winner of the $444 USD Bounty Forty HR .

These numbers reflect the participation of 168 players who quickly eliminated the threat of the stack and took home $69,518 in prize money. The Spaniard missed out on some of his usual opponents in the pricier tournaments, but the final had an elite poker vibe, with classics like Joseph Cheong finishing third and the Brazilian playing a typical heads-up.

Adrian’s minimum odds gave him the opportunity to comment on how Juan Carlos Vecino won $525 in HR After Hours , the usual finale of GGPoker’s High Roller event, which begins late morning in Spain.

At this point, 57 players are still active, and Juanki (No. 1 with a $7,117 contract) has mostly dealt with Asian and American players, although No. 5 ” Relojero “($2,600) is also a latecomer.

To find the third winner of the night, we went to PokerStars . We mentioned Big $109 earlier because we knew it would be in the chronicles due to PataNegraXD’s stellar performance in the tournament.

Guille follows in the footsteps of Amatos, Jonwayne or Menda, though today’s typical average is about 231 , with first-place prize money of $4,236 .

Now that we’ve loosened our corset, we can’t miss the Reds’ second-best finish in the tournament, even if it wasn’t a win in this case.

Oihan Abárzuza made the final table of the Pokerstars Daily Main Tournament, bounty generator HR $530. He finished fourth, but had the second-best bounty harvest, $7,842 .
