Poker History
After being crowned the Brazilian Online Champion for the 2007/2008 year Nelson was rewarded with professional status. Online poker is where Nelson really excelled, winning over $500,000 in tournaments over PartyPoker, BestPoker and others. However he has also gained a reputation on the live circuit which Nelson believes is his strongest, after winning several stages in the Rio de Janeiro 100k and 50k awards and finishing just out of the money in his first ever WSOP Main Event.

After finishing 535th in the 2009 WSOP Main Event (which became the second highest result for a Brazilian citizen), Nelson pushed himself all the way up to seventh in the Brazilian Online League. Furthermore after finishing 7th in the 2008/2009 league, and being champion in 2007/8, Nelson will aim to match this achievement in the coming months.

2010 promises to be a good one for Nelson, with plans to play many other events beyond the WSOP, with a wide range of tournaments being available at the Venetian, Bellagio and Caesars Palace.
