Home / Uncategorized / LAPT8 Brazil: Getting real (prize pool and payouts)

Time for some real talk.

As the third level of Day 2 continues here at the Latin American Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event, we have prize pool and payout information to pass along.

Last year’s LAPT Brazil Main Event — with a lower buy-in and larger field — set a record for the tour’s history in terms of its prize pool. But this year’s Main Event has come close in terms of the number of Brazilian reais — the plural form of the singular real — that are up for grabs.

With 426 entries in this R$10,000 buy-in event, the total prize pool added up to a hefty R$3,760,300, an amount currently worth close to $1 million USD according to the current exchange rates.

Of that amount, R$727,620 is scheduled to go to the winner, R$458,760 to the runner-up, and a minimum of R$85,730 to everyone making it to the eight-handed final table.

The top 63 finishers will make the money, with R$15,980 representing the minimum payout.

Here’s how all 63 places will pay:

1. R$727,620
2. R$458,760
3. R$329,030
4. R$261,340
5. R$204,940
6. R$160,540
7. R$120,700
8. R$85,730
9. R$68,440
10-11. R$56,780
12-13. R$49,260
14-15. R$43,240
16-17. R$38,730
18-20. R$34,970
21-23. R$31,210
24-27. R$27,450
28-31. R$23,690
32-39. R$19,930
40-55. R$17,300
56-63. R$15,980

There are about 130 players left as they move through Level 13, meaning a little over half of them will be facing the reality of walking away without earning a single real.
