LAPT Mar del Plata: The end of the road
This is how the end begins.
It has been a long road, one that traveled from San Jose, Costa Rica to Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. It then turned farther south, to Vina del Mar, Chile and then cross-continent to Punta del Este, Uruguay. For many people, they were long, thankless hours on a long, thankless road. For a select few, those miles were the path to riches and fame. Both those things have brought the un-thanked and unpaid on this last stop.
This is the end of the road for the Latin America Poker Tour's second season. Like all trips of faith, this one has ended in a paradise. The beachside report city of Mar del Plata is called The Happy City and there's little doubt why.
Here's a look at our place at the end.

After following this tour down the long road, we have settled ourselves in the casino and are preparing for the start of play. Keep it here for all the news we can shove through the ether.
