Rafael Reis

Rafael Reis wasn’t among the chip leaders at the first break but he is now and might be the top. We found him stacking up to 207,600 at the start of Level 11 and a dangerous player in these big field tournaments.

Reis was the last player standing in a tournament with the biggest field in Florida poker history. The opening event of the 2016 RRPO drew 5,018 entries and he took home $155,642 as the champ.
