Fans of Latin American card games watched the Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT) Rio Main Event with great interest since it was so exciting. During the course of a four-hour final table, Anthony Barranqueiros emerged as the tournament’s great champion and the eighth winner of the green and yellow.
This player from Basel won R$650,000, the largest sum of his life, after besting a field of 557 competitors. The native of Sao Paulo started the final table with the most chips and maintained his advantage without making any showy plays. Yet, the 6-handed table saw the man become the overwhelming favorite when he won a triple all-in pot.
Juan Pablo Franco of Argentina was the best player to represent his nation, finishing in seventh place in the final table and winning 104,900 reais. However, Gloria Molina of Colombia and Jorge Ramella of Uruguay qualified for the final Tri-Handed to battle it out for the championship, which is a very “Mercosur” definition.
Last but not least, Anthony would emerge victorious, earning the champion’s trophy and relegating Ramella to second place and Colombia’s Gloria Molina to third. Another Latin participant, José Ferro of Colombia, took home sixth place and 140,500 reais.
I’d want to congratulate all of the Latino brothers on their excellent work.
