2016 PCA Main Event: 19 Players Left - Pires Still Out In Front!

Tags: 2016 PCA, Leonardo Pires.
Posted on 13 January 2016 by "T".

Another day of play concluded last night on Paradise Island, and amazingly enough Brazil's Leonardo Pires finished as the chip leader for a third consecutive day! Pires will lead the 19 remaining players into Day 5 with a stack worth more than 4.5 million or 187 big blinds! That's about twice the stack size of his closets opponent!

Now, you might wonder who is this guy? Well, according to PCA reporters, Pires comes from the city of Belo Horizonte (the 6th largest in Brazil) and is a regular Omaha cash game player. After recently winning a casino tournament in Uruguay for $50,000, he decided to give poker tournaments a shot.

A wise decision to say the least, because no matter what happens next he's guaranteed to take home $32,360. Howevever, we are pretty confident that he will make it to the final table and secure a six-figure payday (the winner gets $833,260).


Remaining players:

Leonardo Pires (Brazil) 4560000
Randy Kritzer (USA) 2385000
Fabian Ortiz (Argentina) 2309000
Timothy Ulmer (USA) 2200000
Phillip McAllister (UK) 2152000
David Eldridge (USA) 2100000
Stephen Chidwick (UK) 1728000
Toby Lewis (UK) 1396000
Vasken Demlakian (Australia) 1394000
Matthew Waxman (USA) 1228000
Tony Gregg (USA) 1089000
Martin McCormick (UK) 1007000
Mike Watson (Canada) 952000
Paul Gooley (Australia) 705000
Ami Barer (Canada) 679000
Vladimir Troyanovskiy (Russia) 612000
Fabian Chauriye (Chile) 513000
Fedor Holz (Germany) 453000
Taylor Paur (USA) 404000

If he is truly a regular Omaha Cash Player then my respect (given at the other topic where we learned he did not make final table) is truly earned for the second time tonight in the best way since he is playing my fav kinda game so I am gonna look out for this guy from now on.

Yeah but what is life worth without risk? He did not made that big pile of chips by keeping it safe I guess. He just remained true to himself till the end.
