Team 888poker welcomes its newest member - Nicolau Villa-Lobos!
Nicolau is a cinema student and a poker enthusiast who came in second at the Brazilian Poker Series 2012 for $43,306 and is now sitting with nearly 1 Million in chips in front of him at the World Series of Poker Main Event!
The amazing thing about Nicolau's story is that he came to Vegas without the money to actually play the Main Event, but managed to win a satellite and is now guaranteed to win over $52,000 with a stack that can take him all the way to final table.
Hailing from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Nicolau comes from generation-spanning musical heritage and is currently studying cinema, having recently played his own father in a bio-pic about the legendary Brazilian singer Renato Russo!
Welcome to the 888poker Team M888, and Good Luck!
