Anthony Barranqueiros was pleasantly surprised by the outcome of the final of the LAPT Rio Main Event. Ahead from start to finish, he just needed a little over four hours to eliminate his last eight opponents from the tournament at the Windsor Marapendi Hotel. The Jundiai professional earned R$650,000 for his best triumph to date.
Anthony’s triumph made him just the second person to ever take down the Main Event at both the LAPT and the BSOP. In the Rio Quente stage in Goiás in 2019, he won R$205,750.
With a 34 bb advantage, Anthony won his way into the LAPT championship match. When he won a triple all-in with AA against six opponents, he left them all in the dust.
Anthony was in complete command of the situation in the preview. The pressure was mounting for the Uruguayan, and he eventually attempted a 3-bet push from 21 bbs, which was called. Anthony defeated A3 with KQ on a 28Q84 board to win the last pot and the tournament.
“Anything like this final table was completely unexpected. The FTs were lengthy and difficult in all my outcomes. I’m quite sure that this was the quickest final I’ve ever competed in. Thankfully, the plan worked out perfectly. This realization is only now beginning to dawn on me. Everything happened quickly, I raced well, and I’m proud to have won the nation its seventh championship “, the victor after the fight was over.
