Inside the Mind of a Pro: Swedish haute cuisine on the menu

By in

To celebrate the return of the famous $10,000 6-max, your favourite series is bringing you a face-off between João Vieira and one of the most famous usernames on the poker planet.

Inside the Mind of a Pro @ WSOP 2023 - Joao Vieira - 12There are already eleven episodes behind us in this season of Inside the Mind of a Pro devoted to the 2023 edition of the World Series of Poker... But in a way, by tackling the tournament we're interested in today, we've barely reached the main course.

The WSOP's $10,000 buy-in 6-max is definitely not a competition like any other, whether it be in regards to the World Championship schedule or your favourite series. With its short-handed format designed for online players, since the mid-2000s it has established itself as a reliable barometer of the latest strategic trends on the pro circuit. Every year, it identifies the younger geniuses from the Internet who will soon become the bosses of the live sphere. And many consider it to be a second Main Event, with an aura and prestige of its own. It is therefore impossible for our cameras to miss this unique event. Especially as the Team Winamax pros regularly do very well here: Davidi Kitai's unforgettable second-place finish in 2016, in one of the longest series of episodes in the schedule's history, or the flurry in 2022, when four of our Pros reached Day 3.

Fast forward to summer of 2023: after a string of four final tables in four different variants, it's a João Vieira in full form who takes his place on the '10K 6-max'. Like him, we recommend that you make yourself comfortable: a legendary Swedish pro, holder of one of the most famous usernames in the history of poker, is about to arrive at the table...
