LAPT5 Punta del Este: Uruguay's 1-2 combination ends Day 1
It was a short Day 1 at LAPT5 Punta del Este at Mantra. Union regulations on the length of dealer workdays, combined with a shortage of dealers, meant that only six levels were completed before play came to an end. By that point, Juan Garcia of Uruguay had a commanding chip lead of 134,650. No other player had amassed more than 100,000. It looked like Claudio Garrone, also of Uruguay, might be the 2nd place player with 84,200 but it will take some time to sort out all the bags and confirm that.
