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.”

Final Table Results:

1st: Roberly Felicio - $1,000,000
2nd: Sang Liu - $500,000
3rd: Joel Wurtzel - $300,000
