Two more WSOP bracelet winners were crowned at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas, including two South Americans. Daniel Ospina, a pro from Colombia won Event #14 NL 2-7 Lowball, and Roberly Felicio, a restaurant owner from Brazil, shipped Event #9 $565 NL Colossus for a cool million.

Add two more names to the history books. Once you win a bracelet, you achieve poker immortality. In the last 48 hours, a pair of South Americans basked in the warmth of the winner's circle as Colombia and Brazil notched their first bracelets of the summer. Say hello to the newest winners: Daniel Ospina and Roberly Felicio.

Roberly Felicio faded a massive field of 13,070 players to win the COLOSSUS Donkament. The Brazilian went all the way to the promised land in his first-ever WSOP final table. He also shipped $1 million for the victory. Not too shabby, eh?

Daniel Ospina, a pro from Colombia, made a name for himself on the Latin America Poker Tour over the last decade. He's no stranger to the WSOP with three final table appearances since 2011. Ospina finally went the distance to win his first bracelet, while avenging a runner-up finish in the same event three years ago.

Event #7 COLOSSUS $565 NL - Final Results

FelicioDonkament

After a week of action, we finally have a champion in the COLOSSAL DONKAMENT. This year's Colossus had a $565 price tag. Yeah, for the low-low-low price, you can be the owner of shiny, new bracelet! The modest buy-in attracted more donks than you can shake a stick at with 13,070 total entrants.

The prize pool passed $6.5 million and an even million was set aside to the champion. All the cheesecake was at the final table in this event, with the biggest, baddest slice getting served to the champion. Second place paid out only $500,000, so there was a noticeable pay jump. The final two slugged it out for a heads-up match essentially worth $500,000. Talk about pressure! No big deal though. Once you outlast a field of 13,000 donks, fish, sharks, ocelots, lemurs, wombats, alien hybrids, and other aquatic pejoratives… what's one more person?

When the dust settled, a Brazilian stood alone in the killing fields after surviving 13,069 other combatants. Roberly Felicio, who owns a restaurant in Brazil, defeated Sang Lui heads-up for the win, much to the delight of rabid Brazilians on the rail. Sang walked away with $500K, which is still an impressive score for a meager $565 investment.

John Racener had an excellent 2017 WSOP with a bracelet win a couple of final tables as he competed for the Player of the Year Race with Jesus Ferguson. The former November Niner made his first final table of the 2018 WSOP, which was hella impressive considering the redonk size of this COLOSSUS field. Racener's magical run as the token pro-donkslayer at the final table ended when he was knocked out in 8th place.

The final table in the COLOSSUS also included Joel Wurtzel, Scott Margeresonm TK Miles, Song Choe, Gunther Dumsky, and Steven Jones. Matt Silva bubbled off the final table in tenth place.

Event #14 $1,500 NL 2-7 Lowball Draw - Final Results

DanielOspinaWSOP

Ship it to Colombia!

Daniel Ospina finally wins a bracelet. The pro from Colombia avenged a runner-up finish at the 2015 WSOP in the same event (when he lost to Christian Pham and outlasted a final table that included Huck Seed and Mike Leah).

Overall, this was a third final table for Ospina and his 12th overall WSOP cash. In 2011, Ospina final tabled the $10,000 HORSE Championship and finished in an impressive fourth place. He was the virtual unknown at that table and flew under the radar. That was the first time North Americans and Europeans got wind of one of the best players to ever come out of Colombia.

Ospina's career WSOP earnings are now approximately $440K. Ospina final tabled events in Latin America, particularly on the LAPT. In total, Ospina's career earnings in tournaments is roughly $700K.

The 14th event on the docket this summer attracted 260 lowball specialists. Only the top 39 places got paid out.

Ray Henson bowed out shortly before the final table. While Matt Szymaszek bubbled off the final table in eighth place.

Shaun Deeb had final tabled two events at the same time. WTF? Yeah, the online grinder has no problems multitabling in the virtual world, but two-tabling in real life is not as easy as you think. Deeb managed to hang for third place, when he was wafflecrushed.

With Deeb's bustout, it came down to two players: Ospina vs. Tim McDermott. Ospina picked off Timothy McDermott heads-up to win.

Tim McD walked away with $54K, while Ospina banked nearly $88K and the bracelet. The money is fine and dandy, but Ospina wanted the bling. He came THISCLOSE to winning this event three summers ago and avenged his runner-up performance.

Maria Ho went on a deep run, but she busted in 16th place.

Other notables who went deep in Event #14 and cashed included.. John Bunch, Dan Weinman, Devin Looney, Stuart Rutter, Mark Gregorich, Cary Moomjian, Ty Stafford, Jim Morgan, Steve Friedlander, Roland Israelashvili, Ian Steinman, Ajay Chabra, Fred Li, Adam Crwford, Owais Ahmed, Steve Tabb, Chong Lee, Brad Helm, Jesse Martin, Noah Bronstein, Jon Turner, Robert Mizrachi, Andy Kelsall, Mike Palu,bo, David Prociak, Erle Mankin, Mark Castaginni, and Frank Kassela.
