LAPT announces Season 6 schedule to start in Chile

January 24, 2013

In less than two months, the Latin American Poker Tour will return for its sixth season. The biggest and richest poker tour in the region plans to kickstart the year with a full festival at the Enjoy Casino & Resort in Viña del Mar, Chile.

Running March 13-17, the $1,000 + 100 main event is famous for drawing big crowds to the city by the sea. This will be the fourth time the LAPT has touched down in the hip city 45 minutes out of Santiago. Last year, the main event drew nearly 700 players who fought for a prize pool worth more than $650,000. This year, the LAPT will host nine events, including a $5,000 high roller tourney.

After leaving Chile, the LAPT is planning to hit all its other big stops in the region. It will head to Brazil in April, Colombia in June, Peru in July, Panama in September, and Uruguay in November.

Season 5 Panama winner Leo Fernandez said, “I’m happy that the tour I love to play will return to Panama, where I felt great excitement not only from winning the event, but also because I was able to share the experience with friends and people I love. There is a unique atmosphere of love and support from everyone involved in LAPT events that you cannot find elsewhere.”
