Pablo Brito Silva can’t wait for the MILLIONS Online Main Event to kick off. The Brazilian ace told the partypoker blog that winning the $5 million guaranteed Main Event would rank as his best-ever result.
That’s quite some claim considering Silva has more than $7 million in online poker tournament winnings and more than $1.1 million from the live arena. The majority of Silva’s $1,138,825 stem from his victory in the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS South America Main Event. That impressive victory came with a $1 million first-place prize.
Silva Really Misses Live Poker
MILLIONS South America was the last live MILLIONS event we ran before the COVID-19 pandemic took over. Silva was all set to jet off around the world playing in prestigious tournaments with his bigger bankroll and newfound confidence.
“I’m missing playing live poker a lot,” Silva told the partypoker blog. “I was very fortunate to win MILLIONS South America and after that I had plans to travel and play more live events, so yes, I’m missing it a lot.”
There is a lot of prestige attached to becoming a poker champion. In Silva’s case, there was also a seven-figure bankroll-boosting score in addition to bragging rights among his peers.
“It was a big achievement [winning MILLIONS South America]for sure. Aside from being my biggest tournament score, it helps me keep doing what I love.”
Silva Heads Online; Continues Crushing
It’s hard enough not being allowed to do something you love but it’s even more difficult to accept when you’re in hot form and on the back of a potentially life-changing win. Winning $1 million keeps Silva in the game for longer and gives him plenty more chances to make even more money.
With live poker off the table, what has Silva been doing to keep his skills razor-sharp?
“I spend most of my time playing poker online and studying. I have a strong group of Brazilian players working with me and we have improved our strategies during this time.”
It didn’t take long for Silva to put those new strategies to good use because he won the Irish Open Main Event in April, another popular live event that headed online to partypoker.
If I won MILLIONS Online, I would rank this win on top for sure. It is a great tournament to play, huge prizes, good structure, it will be fantastic if I win this one
Silva topped a star-studded field of 2,945 players, including defeating Hungarian superstar Andras Nemeth heads-up, to get his hands on €462,100. Now Silva is turning his attention to the upcoming MILLIONS Online Main Event.
“I always look forward to big events, especially MILLIONS. I’ll play some satellites for sure, but I will definitely play this event regardless. If I won MILLIONS Online, I would rank this win on top for sure. It is a great tournament to play, huge prizes, good structure, it will be fantastic if I win this one.
MILLIONS Online Is Right Around The Corner
Neither Silva nor you have long to wait until the MILLIONS Online festival shuffles up and deals. The $1,100 buy-in $1 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event starts on February 13 and there are already a bunch of satellites, starting at a mere $0.01, in the partypoker lobby.
