Name: Renato Nomura

With 45 picture-perfect beaches, year-long sun and crazy carnivals, it's testament to Renato Nomura's determination that he has managed to ignore all the distractions that the Brazilian city of Florianopolis has to offer and focus on the tables.
Poker initially served as a tool to bond Renato with his two older brothers, refining his game whilst engaging in friendly sibling rivalry. Renato then put his skills to the test online. After building up his bankroll, Renato now has 3 POWERFEST titles to his name with cashes totalling over $420k in the POWERFEST series alone.
However, the talented Brazilian has also made his presence felt on the live circuit, and in style, by beating a field of 572 players to be crowned winner of the BSOP Main Event in 2013 for $108,917.
Renato is also a coach with The Massari Poker School, run by partypoker ambassadors, João and Luiza Simão, and he admits that coaching helps him tighten up his own game too!
