RonaldinhoBR was the winner in last weekend's Capcom Pro Tour in Brazil, taking the set in grand finals against JUNINHO-RAS 3-2, and will be rewarded for his efforts with a place at Capcom Cup.
The Brazilian region is a large one with so many great players making the CPT a huge opportunity to bypass the slugfest that is the World Warrior Program. Ronaldinho was a favorite heading into the tournament because he is also the last winner of the Brazil CPT. He did not disappoint, using his Nash to great effect.
The top 8 bracket featured some familiar names, including Dark and former CPT winner, Jah_Lexe. There were a few new faces, most notably JUNINHO-RAS who is relatively new to the scene and hasn't really featured in international tournaments. He really rose to prominence in 2021 when he placed in the top 2 at the Intel World Open - South America Regional: Brazil - Open Qualifier #4. His run in the losers' bracket was remarkable as he used Luke to terrorize his opponents. After getting sent to losers by Dark, he beat Gust, Horuspaulin and Dark (all 3-1 results) before succumbing to Ronaldinho's pressure.
