This is a discussion on Best known Brazilian Poker player within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Good afternoon people! I would like to know from you who is the best known Brazilian Poker player abroad. João Simão, André Akkari, Pedro Padilha
From your list, I just know João Simão and André Akkari. I see them in some tournaments and I feel I prefer André Akkari.

I think our Brazilian friends are far better qualified to answer this question, but as a Canadian, the most prominent name is Andre Akkari. I've seen a lot of Felipe Ramos as well on the PokerStars tours. Also, we can't forget Bruno Politano, who made the Main Event Final Table in 2014 (doesn't seem like that long ago, LOL!!!).
Somebody asked me what my favourite hand is, and I said "The one that takes all your chips".
If I shove and you call, I'll show.
