Today, KSOP GGPoker South America ushered in the long-awaited second day of the main event. Traditionally, this is the day when Moisés Moraes, CEO of Kings Eventos, delivers the opening speech of the race, thanking people and talking about the next steps for the track. But today’s opening ceremony brought a big surprise: a marriage proposal.
Rafael Tabalipa, a player from Rondônia, made a special proposal while the entire hall was paralyzed waiting for the game to start. Tabalipa, who had the right to kneel if necessary and a beautiful bouquet of flowers, announced his proposal through a microphone and received the long-awaited “yes” from his fiancée Waslla Araruna, in the hall Warm applause immediately broke out.
After the exciting scene, Tabalipa told us about his choice: “I came up with this idea because of the beautiful scenery here. I really like poker and the stage is very Great. I’m sure it will be a surprise for her, she never imagined anything like this.” “I wanted to surprise her and I think I succeeded,” the now-fiancé said.
To add to the overall atmosphere, Rafael Tabalipa also said that he had to come up with another reason why Wasla could start the second day: “She came here because she thought I was attending interview, and she didn’t know anything,” he revealed. Waslla Araruna is no longer playing tournaments, but now he will leave a lasting poker memory in his own history.
