Chilean Alex Manzano wins LAPT Brazil

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Feb 23, 2011 Posted in Online Poker News | No Comments »

The PokerStars.net Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT) has come a long in its short history. What began as a three tournament series played in the previously untapped markets of Central and South America, has blossomed into six stops for Season 4, with buy-ins that have doubled from the original $2,500. There was no better indication of the LAPT’s growth than at the recently concluded LAPT Brazil Championship where the tour broke the 400 player ceiling for the first time –not only did they break the ceiling, they shattered it, with 536 registering for the tournament!

Despite a final table loaded with Brazilians it was Chilean Alex Manzano who would come out on top of the largest field in LAPT history –as well as the largest overall prize-pool in the history of the tour, and Manzano was awarded the second largest sum in the tour’s history.

Here is a look at how the final 8 players fared at the LAPT Brazil Championship:

· Alex Manzano — $615,840
· Joao Bauer — $352,760
· Marcelo Fonseca — $224,800
· Marcio Motta — $165,000
· Leandro Csome — $117,190
· Santiago Nadal — $93,270
· Henrique Bernardes — $69,350
· Bruno Politano — $45,440

The next stop on Season 4 of the LAPT will be on Manzano’s home turf of Chile, as the tour heads to Vina Del Mar, Chile for the LAPT Chile National Poker Championship beginning March 17th, 2011.
