LAPT Punta del Este: Hard to read Font
If he would take off his shiny shades, Alberto Font might be easier to read. Maybe he knows this, because it's rare to see him without them.
We first spotted the Spaniard this year at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure when he final tabled a side event and picked up nearly $35,000. Before that, his biggest live finish was $27,020 for a 441st finish at the 2007 World Series.
Tonight, the ever-quiet player is making some noise without saying a word. At this late hour, Font has taken his stack to the 140,000 range. That's good for the chip lead with a level and half to go.
With 90 minutes left to play tonight, a few more than 80 of the original 327 players remain. There is no chance of making the money (top 36) tonight, but we stand a good chance of only having seven tables left at the end of the night.
Some of the bigger names left in action tonight include Alex Brenes, Jose Rosenkrantz, and Christian Kruel.
We're now out in search of anyone who may be creeping up on Font's stack. Back in just a bit.
