Coming into Thursday’s final table, Roberly Felicio had only three World Series of Poker cashes, two of which were Circuit events, totaling $4,682. He ultimately won the Colossus event and its $1 million cash prize.

“I’m very happy,” said Felicio through an interpreter after his win. “It was a very tough final table with very tough opponents. And the heads-up, especially, was much emotional. But I’m very happy to be able to win. I still don’t realize what is happening, but I’m very happy to take a bracelet and that’s very rewarding for me.”

Felicio became a crowd favorite.

“That was the best part,” said Felicio about his rail of support. “I came here to Vegas with only one friend and being here, I had a lot of Brazilians cheering for me and also some professionals. I think that was the difference heads-up. When I was down, I would look at the rail and the people that are there cheering for me. I’m sure that is what made the difference for me to get the title.”

1st: Roberly Felicio - $1,000,000
