Player from Paraná, Vitor Dzivielevski, left his mark in the history of poker by winning first place in the Big Challenger of the WSOP (World Series of Poker) Circuit Brazil 2024, based in Rio de Janeiro.

This special tournament reserved spots exclusively for players who had already secured WSOP titles.

When asked about his victory, Vitor expressed his satisfaction: “It’s been fantastic, I’ve become the champion of champions, and I’m not even a Corinthians fan. It’s an indescribable feeling.

I came with the thought of securing a ring, when I saw the grid I was already thinking about it. I just didn’t expect it to be that quick,” he told Mundo Poker.

With this achievement, Vitor Dzivielevski equaled his brother Yuri Martins, both of whom now hold both WSOP Circuit rings and world champion bracelets.

It is worth mentioning that Vitor secured his bracelet the previous year, by winning Event #16 ($600 NLH Online Deepstack). Meanwhile, his brother Yuri holds the impressive title of the only Brazilian with four poker “World Cup” bracelets.

When reflecting on this joint achievement with his brother, Vitor jokes: “You have to ask my father how he did this kind of thing, what he put in our bottles when we were children.

But, it’s wonderful, the family’s demands were enormous, my brother has several. This is something that stands out, regardless of the monetary value, these are poker’s gold medals”, he emphasized.

The prize money for the Big Challenger title was significant, with Vitor taking home R$35,430. Second place went to Daniel Noronha, who pocketed R$24,420, while Samara Alexandre completed the podium with R$15,550.

Finally, the WSOP Circuit returned to excite poker enthusiasts in Brazil after two years of absence. The event is being held at Windsor Barra, in Barra da Tijuca, and continues until March 20th.

With a total of 24 tournaments, 16 of which offer the much-coveted reward in the form of rings for the champions, the guaranteed prize pool is R$9 million.
