Each month we’ll showcase one of our ACR Stormers as part of an ongoing series. Keep reading this article to learn more about Gustavo Franco, known on the tables simply as “Blasnair”.
If there was ever a role model for working your way up the poker ladder, it’s Gustavo. A devout husband and father of 16 years, he’s been honing his poker craft for over a decade since discovering the game. Starting out as a recreational hobbyist playing at local tournaments, Gustavo spent some years grinding before eventually hitting a big cash that allowed him to leave his job and pursue a career in poker. Eventually he was able to join a poker tour and spent a few months working his way up the rankings before the pandemic abruptly halted his progress and forced him to convert to an unfamiliar format: online poker.
Gustavo wisely understood the need for patience in the beginning of his online poker journey and spent some time grinding micro MTTs – in which he cashed well. More importantly, those times spent in the micros allowed him to build the same confidence level he had worked for at the live tables, something that continues to evolve and grow today.
Fortunately, it wasn’t long before Gustavo was introduced to poker streaming on Twitch by a group of online poker friends. He eventually met ACR Streamer “Progressivedreamer” who showed him the ropes and helped him begin his Twitch journey, which has been underway for the past two years. Finally, a decade after playing poker for the very first time, Gustavo has officially checked off one of his goals by joining Americas Cardroom’s Twitch team and becoming a sponsored streamer.
So from all of us in the ACR family, congratulations Gustavo. We welcome you to the team and thank you for proving once again that slow and steady does indeed win the race!
