Another day of the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has come to an end and there are now only 24 players left with the chance of taking home the incredible $1.4 million first-place prize!

The chip leader is Eugenio Mattar, who bagged up 2,6732,000 after five levels of play in Day 4. Mattar, who doesn't have any recorded live tournament cashes, owns a car rental company in Brazil and is listed as no. 72 on Forbes' list of Brazil's richest people.

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

Juan Martin Pastor is Supernova Elite and instructor of Intellipoker, is doing a very good tournament, I hope to see you at the final table of the PCA. Let Argentina! Worship
 LucasGeo13/01/2015 13:31:35 GMT
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
 LadyFloppy13/01/2015 14:16:48 GMT
Go go go Argentina, we'll be at the final table and improve 8th place finish by Fabian Ortiz in 2014, Pastor or Etcheverry, one of the two will be in the final table of the main event

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.
 Robbo199014/01/2015 04:03:39 GMT
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.
 bowie198415/01/2015 14:51:37 GMT
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 Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile
