There have been some big names bite the dust in this tournament and it goes to prove how difficult it is to win one of these tourneys. I was hoping Ronaldo would make the final table but he had a good run and kudos to him

Go go go, Juan Martín Pastor and Juan Etcheverry, which in this day Argentina finished with a representative at the final table of the PCA The two Argentines did a very good tournament, they deserve to be among the best

Ronaldo's performance was very good, I would have liked to see him at the final table, I wish an Argentine wins the PCA Main Event undoubtedly Pastor of the two who remain is the one with better chances

I have seen Ronaldo play at a few of these pokerstars events and I don't think I have not seen him cash before so he is obviously making the most of being a sponsored player and if he does try and learn from the other pros it won't be long before he does make a final table.

I think it makes a huge difference that the chip leader has a listed company. It means hes playing with a lower risk, and people who have worked up some savings to buy in will be playing with caution. He can use that to push them off some big hands.
Oh, no, Fat Ronaldo went home. No more pirating in the caribbean for him this year. Does anybody knows who sponsors him? I wouldn't say I believe the scenario where he is ending his football carrier and later spends his hard-earned money to play big league poker with pros. I mean don't get me wrong, he could be a good enough player to sit at the table, and we all know since Michael Jordan that professional sports players love to gamble but I would never imagined in a million years that this ends up being his new carrier.
Honestly the more I think about this the more I am interested in who backs him on what terms and do the brasilian tax agency look after these financials, or more, do they look after brasilian pro players at all? If you are a night owl, you will often run into south americans on Jokerstars or Fulltilt 'cuz on the evening there many of them going to play recreationally or for other reasons, but I'm kinda curious about the tax burden about these countries put on these regulars. If it's a tax burden at all. Go, go, go Fat Ronnie
