Magic Championship Final takes place this weekend

World Magic: The Gathering takes place this weekend with Brazilian Paulo Vitor Rosa defending the title

The Magic Championship final will make the community stop this weekend to meet the best player in the most traditional trading card game in the world. From October 8th to 10th, 16 candidates for the title face each other in the Magic World Championship XXVII, a tournament that in 2020 consecrated the Brazilian Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa, one of the candidates to win the champion's cup again. The event will be entirely online and will have a total prize pool of US$ 250 (approximately R$ 1,3 million), which will be divided among all participants. The champion will take home a jackpot of US$ 70 thousand (just over R$ 385).

On the eve of the competition, the Brazilian PV, as he is called, says that the preparation was arduous and that he does not see himself as the favorite in the competition. “It's been weeks of pretty intense training, but I don't feel any additional pressure to defend the title. I know it's a tough championship, with the best players in the world, and that's why I see myself as one more in the fight for the podium, like all the other 15”.
