We’ve seen an influx of Brazilian players in Tampa this series, many of them know each other and are currently living in Orlando.

Today’s Brazilian invasion landed three of them on the same table. Josias Santos finished 8th in Event 7 for $1,451 (1 of 4 series’ cashes), he’s next to Ricardo Rodriguez (9th in Event 4 for $1,125).

Across the table from her countrymen is Daiane Mendes, who was 22nd in Event 4.

Other Brazilians seen here in Tampa include Claudemir Osorio who was part of a final chop in Event 4 for $10,000, Rafael Reis, two event cashes and Paulo Castro who final tabled Event 7 with Santos finishing one spot higher in 7th place.
