If there is one sure thing about the upcoming final table of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event, it is that we all look forward to see what Bruno "Foster" Politano has prepared for us.
No one forgot the enthusiasm of the huge, colorful, and loud rail that joined him in Las Vegas for the last day of the Main Event, and, as the final table approaches, Politano's plan to win at least the emotional side of the poker battle that will begin on Monday, November 10 is starting to become very clear.
"My family is coming over, my sister who lives in Philly is flying over with some friends, and the entire Brazilian poker nation is coming down," Politano promised. "Vegas will be turn green and yellow in November."
Apparently, that’s exactly what is going to happen, as the player managed to get some of the most famous sports stars in the whole world as Barcelona's Neymar and São Paulo FC's Kakà to publicly express their support to his adventure in the Main Event.
The two players, along with other Brazilian stars such as Alexandre Pato, Luis Fabiano, Dentinho, and Fernando Scherer have all joined the "#VAMOFOSTERA" social media campaign organized to support Politano and give an unprecedented visibility to poker in Brazil.
"We never had a Brazilian champion at the WSOP," the midfielder of Brazil’s national team Paulo Henrique Ganso said. "So far, the title always went to European or American players."
Yet, many in the country seem to hope that this will change. "In 2014, Brazil will have its world champion," said the President of the Brazilian Poker Federation Igor Federal. "I am absolutely sure about this," he continued.
"What's up, Bruno Foster?" an enthusiastic Neymar said in the video below. "Want to wish you good luck! Bring this bracelet to Brazil! Let's go Fostera!"
To hear what Ganso, Federal, Neymar and all the rest of the impressive lineup of celebrities that Politano managed to bring to his side have to say (in Portuguese), have a look at the clip below.
