“I’m very excited,” said Ost, who hasn’t played major tournaments like the WSOP before but is a regular in his region. “I have been playing at the university since 2009. After that I started playing Joe EveryChampionship. Now I continue to work as a veterinarian, but since 2019 I have been a medium-duty professional. I’m also a partner in a small poker team.”

He continued: “I have a family that is very supportive of my poker career. My biggest online success this year was the WSOP Mystery Bounty with $24,000 in prize money and around $5,000 live. I want to play more at WSOP Paradise if possible, stay healthy during this marathon and have a relaxing vacation if possible.”

When playing, Ost hopes to meet players like that Daniel Negreanu for “what he represents in poker” and Yuri Martinswho is an “inspiration for all Brazilian players”.
