Brazilian tournament pro and soccer fan Rodrigo Caprioli might not be a well-known name in the world of poker, but he has definitely put in the volume and picked up some notable results along the way. The majority of his earnings have come from playing online under the screenname ‘caprioli’ on PokerStars. At the end of 2012, he reached a huge milestone when he earned 5 million lifetime VPPs after being a multiple-time Supernova Elite player. This achievement is one that only a few poker players manage as it requires a continuous commitment to the game around the year. That Rodrigo managed it on numerous occasions is a testament to his dedication to poker.
Caprioli specialises in less common poker variants as is shown by his online MTT accolades. In 2009, he finished runner-up in the SCOOP-19-H $5,200 PLO event for a huge $155,000. A year later, he earned his first SCOOP title when he took down the 33-L No Limit Omaha Hi / Lo event. 2013 saw the Brazilian become a two-time winner at the Spring Championship of Online Poker after he shipped the $1,050 Pot Limit Courchevel Hi / Lo tourney.
More recently, Rodrigo added a third major online title to his virtual trophy cabinet when he won the 2017 TCOOP-11 $82 PLO 6-Max Turbo, Progressive KO tourney.
In addition to his ~$1 million in online tournament winnings, Rodrigo has won hundreds of thousands of dollars on the live circuit as well. He gained airtime when he reached the final nine of the 2012 EPT Monte Carlo Main Event after getting past tough pros Martin Finger, David ‘Doc’ Sands, and high-roller regulars Stephen Chidwick and Pratyush Buddiga. Though Caprioli did miss out on the $1.7 million prize for the winner, his fifth-place finish earned him a healthy $415,880.
Rodrigo resides in Sao Paulo and continues to grind tournaments both live and online today.
