Inside the Mind of a Pro: João Vieira is back to the future

By in

After witnessing Pierre Calamusa's elimination at the end of last week's episode, we need to rewind the tape a little bit.

Inside the Mind of a Pro - Joao Vieira
Last week, we cheered and chanted and screamed for Pierre Calamusa. LeVietF0u’s extraordinary run ended with a not-so-happy ending; a 4th place elimination that brutally shut down the rail’s hopes and dreams. But we are far from done with our exploration of the 2019 WSOP $5,000 Short-Handed event. You have obviously noticed it: there is still one Winamax Team Pro member remaining seated at the televised table!

Before we find out João Vieira's destiny in the ultimate phase of the tournament, we need to rewind the tape a little bit. It’s time for a good old flashback. Just like in the movies! 24 hours ago: there are still 28 players in the “5K 6-max”, down from a field of 815. Just like Pierre, the Portugese pro is doing great: with a stack over the 100-blind mark, João is on his way to bring his Day 3 to a satisfying conclusion. We already know he’s about to reach his very first WSOP final table in the No-Limit Hold’em format. What we do not know is how.

This is what these 2 brand new episodes of Inside the Mind of a Pro intends to show you. They feature at least one extraordinary hand, one that you have already witnessed during one of Pierre’s episodes. You’re about to see this hand again, but with a key element added to the mix: João’s commentary. As you’re about to find out, the former basketball professional isn’t holding anything back: his chips and his most guarded secrets are flowing freely whilst he’s racing towards the final table.

Inside the Mind of a Pro puts you at the heart of the action during the most critical moments in the biggest live poker tournaments on the planet. Exciting and insightful, this innovative show by Winamax gives you an exclusive, first-hand real-time account of exactly what goes through the mind of a top poker pro when millions of dollars are at stake.

If you are late to the party, welcome! You're in for a treat... but before watching today's new episode, we strongly advise you to rewind back to the start of the season, in order to get comfortable with what the show is all about.
