3 Jun 2010

(PRESS RELEASE) -- In just a couple of months, the Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT) will be making a historic return to Brazil. From August 4-8, 2010, the next LAPT Season 3 stop will be held in the beautiful city of Florianopolis, the capital of Santa Catarina State in Brazil. Top Brazilian weekly news magazine, Veja, named it 'the best city to live in Brazil' and for players visiting there this August it could be the most lucrative too.

"I am so happy that the LAPT will return to Brazil again this season, said Brazilian Team PokerStars Pro Andre Akkari. "It's got everything; players can enjoy the amazing surroundings whilst playing some of the best poker in Latin America!"

Ringed by historic archaeological sites, lush dunes, and adventure trails, the resort sits on 185 acres of Atlantic rainforest and offers some of the best luxury service in the world. And amid it all will be the LAPT's US$2,500 +$200 Main Event.

This is a great opportunity for poker players to enjoy a unique experience, competing for the next LAPT title in a stunning setting. Poker players from across Latin America and the world have already confirmed their attendance including Brazilian Team PokerStars Pros Andre Akkari, Alexandre Gomes, Maridu Mayrinck and Gualter Salles.

"We are very pleased that the LAPT will return to Brazil for the penultimate Season 3 stop and anticipate this event to be one of the biggest in LAPT history," said LAPT President David Carrion. "The support from the government and the outstanding resort make for a combination that will help provide a one of a kind experience for players and their guests."
