Rafael Moraes was a semi-professional chess player who later turned his hand to poker. It turned out to be one of the best decisions he would ever make. In 2019, Moraes, who plays under the screen name GM_VALTER” on PokerStars, became the first ever Brazilian player to win a $1 million prize from a single MTT.
Moraes’ accomplishments include earning two SCOOP trophies (his latest in 2022), final tables in Blowout Series and Turbo Series events, and regular results in high stakes MTTs.
Active on the live poker circuit, Moraes has $1.6 million in live tournament winnings to go along with millions of dollars in online poker cashes. His biggest live score was a third place finish at an EPT Monte Carlo Main Event worth $568,200.
In September 2021, following his success both live and online, Moraes joined Team PokerStars Pro.
