On June 17, 2009, at the World Series of Poker, Felipe Mojave began writing a story with so many chapters that he probably couldn’t have imagined so many storylines. 14 years later, the GGPoker ambassador has pulled off one of the most beautiful passages in the book, winning his 100th cash at the world’s biggest event.
Mojave was the first Brazilian to achieve the feat, which was also the case during Event #90 on Saturday night (15). Mojave’s 100th ITM wasn’t in any tournament: He went up against the elite in a $10,000 6-max No-Limit Hold’em tournament. There were 550 entrants and when 83 entrants remained, the bubble burst.
Mojave’s jackpot is a spoiler, because it’s just the beginning. 14 years ago today, he finished sixth in Event 35 ($5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha) and won $67,663, Felipe’s fourth-biggest cash on the track to date. With 100 ITMs, his WSOP earnings are just over $2.1 million.
This includes WSOP Online Tournaments, WSOP Circuit Events and WSOP Europe. A legend in this regard is American Roland Israelashvlii, who has 431 WSOP Circuit cashes to date. Daniel Negreanu is fourth with 242 points. For the Brazilian, Yuri Martins reached 86th in Saturday’s ITM rankings.
