Awesome berimbolo variations!

One of the best courses out there on de la riva and berimbolos. Berimbolo has been really dominant winning $100k last year at the Spyder Invitational and Paulo breaks down the strategy in just over an hour. I tell people to buy this when they play bad de la riva and berimbolos lol.
