The Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT) event that would have ended Season 7 in Punta del Este, Uruguay has been cancelled and replaced with an event that will kickoff Season 8 and be held during the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) in the Bahamas.
The eighth season of the LAPT will now start in January 2015 at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. A special event as part of the PCA schedule will replace the LAPT Grand Final.
“The PCA is the richest poker festival held outside of Las Vegas and by including the LAPT we can offer players, who are used to lower buy-in tournaments, the opportunity to experience The Atlantis resort and everything the Bahamas has to offer,” announced David Carrion, PCA & LATAM Director of Live Operations said.
The LAPT season 7 is currently under way and will now finish in Lima, Peru at the Atlantic City Casino. The $1,700 buy in Main Event from October 15 to October 19 will be the last of the series until Season 8 begins with the PCA event.
The LAPT started in 2008 and is owned and sponsored by PokerStars. Season 6 included six stops culminating in the Grand Final at the Punta del Este resort in Uruguay.
