Irony. That's what you could call the fact that only one player hailing from Latin America has won an event (out of the first seven) on the Latin American Poker Tour. The previous events at Punta del Este were dominated by Europeans. In Season 1, a Spaniard named Jose Miguel Espinar won the event. Last year in Season 2, a Norwegian online pro named Karl "Houdini" Hevroy took down the title.
