Travel Diary: LAPT Colombia

Chad Holloway

On Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011, the Latin American Poker Tour paid its first visit to the country of Colombia; coincidentally, this was my first trip to the South American country as well. The event took place at the Allegre Casino in Medellin, the second largest city in the country. While traveling to Colombia may seem intimidating given its reputation, I was immediately awestruck upon seeing both the city and the venue, both of which were unique in their own right.
