As someone who lives in the UK–a place which gets around four hot and sunny days per year– I’ve got to say: take the name BSOP Winter Millions with a pinch of salt.
The weather in Sao Paolo in July is still pretty good.
Therefore, if you were thinking of travelling to Brazil’s capital city to play the BSOP Winter Millions but you fear the cold, then fear not. This is a festival you won’t want to miss, nor will you have to pack your thick winter coat.
The entire festival runs from July 13 to July 20 and not only is there a R$4,000 (~$790 USD), R$5 Million guaranteed Main Event, but there’s also a Road to PSPC event to get excited about.
The winner of the Road to PSPC BSOP Winter Millions (July 13 – July 16) will win both prize money and a Platinum Pass to the PokerStars Players Championship worth ~$30,000, taking place in the Bahamas in January 2023.
Find out more about a Platinum Pass and the PSPC here.
If you followed our coverage of the Spring Championship of Online Poker 2022, you’ll know that Brazil absolutely dominated proceedings, winning a record-breaking 72 titles out of 316 events. Their nearest rivals? The UK with just 26.
But Brazil is also an incredible country for live poker and events in Sao Paolo are always huge. Trust us: you’ve never seen poker passion and community spirit like you will in Brazil.
