During the LAPT Rio goodbye, men and women from Brazil sported beards, hair, and mustaches. Thiago Camilo won a heated heads-up match against Johann Ibáez of Colombia to keep the High Roller trophy in Brazil. The Stock Car Pro Series driver took home R$472,000 for his win.
Thiago wasn’t alone on the podium; Kelvin Kerber was there, too. The Samba Team member’s spouse took home his third six-figure prize of the competition, for R$ 219,000. He finished in second place last week in the single-day high rollers, winning R$155,840 and R$108,650.
While he does not play professionally, Thiago has an impressive record in MTTs. The multiple Million Race winner has been actively competing in high-stakes events for the last decade.
The High Roller event more than quadrupled its $500,000 guarantee with 81 registrations at $25,000. See how much each competitor pocketed out of the $1,000,000 prize pool.
