Posted by Steve Ruddock on Sep 25, 2010 Posted in Tournament News | No Comments »

The Latin American Poker Tour’s Grand Final is taking place in Argentina, and a large field of 334 international poker players made the trek to the South American country to take part in the event.  The fantastic turnout –despite the World Series of Poker Europe running concurrently in London, and the WPT Borgata Poker Open in Atlantic City—has created a top prize of over $322k!

Heading into the Play-Down day there will be 24 players returning to the poker tables with some notable names still in the running. Sitting in 4th place is poker pro Terrence Chan with 342,000 chips and a little further down the leader-board is Team PokerStars Pro Angel Guillen, nursing a 172,000 chip-stack.

Here is a look at the top 10 chip counts heading into day 3 of the tournament:

1.    Francisco de Belaustegui, Argentina — 346000
2.    Bolivar Palacios, Panama — 342000
3.    Gerardo Godinez Estrada, Mexico — 331000
4.    Terrence Chan, Hong Kong — 324000
5.    Mario Niciforo, Argentina  — 295500
6.    Matthias Habernig, Austria — 272500
7.    Carlos Augusto Perez Herrera, Colombia — 265000
8.    Martin Sansour,  Peru — 265000
9.    Roberto Bianchi, Argentina  — 258500
