PokerStars gears for LAPT Lima event

1 Jun 2010

PRESS RELEASE) -- The next event on the PokerStars calendar might just prove to be one of its most popular, with Lima in Peru hosting the next leg of the Latin American Poker Tour.

This is the LAPT's first trip to Lima, the Peruvian capital, and the Atlantic City Casino in the upmarket district of Miraflores. The casino is the birthplace of big tournament poker in Latin America and is proud to host the USD $2,700 buy-in LAPT Lima Main Event starting on June 2, 2010.

In just its third season, the LAPT has established itself as one of the world's most sought-after titles on the poker calendar – of the nine LAPT champions no less than seven have come from overseas, while five travelled from Europe to win LAPT glory.

It will be one of the most exciting poker events ever played in the country, but the appeal for players extends far beyond the felt of the tables. Lima itself is an open book of opportunities for the first time visitor, as the Miraflores district will attest. Outside the city of Lima are monuments to Peru's intricate history, chief among them the ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu, one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

Perched in a spectacular location 8,000 feet up in the Andes mountains, Machu Picchu remains the most significant and well-known archaeological site on the South American continent. It's an historic city waiting to be explored by a new generation of visitors to Peru wishing to witness for themselves the grandeur that goes beyond any words or photographs.

To help players get there, the LAPT has arranged for full-package excursions, including transfers, flights, hotel accommodation and a private English-speaking tour guide. Players should visit the PokerStars welcome desk at the Atlantic City Casino during LAPT Lima for further information.

"Not only will LAPT Lima be a great place to visit but the poker will be some of the best in the world," said David Carrion, LAPT President. "With so many events taking place, and the best players in Latin America and beyond heading to Peru, it should be a great week to be a poker player."

Players can expect to find an exciting mix of side events and cash games at the Atlantic City Casino during LAPT Lima, including satellites to the main event, a second chance tournament, a six-max event and a turbo event..

The final of The Americas Cup of Poker (ACP) will also be played down to a finish the day after the main event concludes. The ACP pitches teams, made up of qualifiers and a Team PokerStars Pro, into battle across the baize for prize money and national pride, full details of which can be found on the Americas Cup of Poker website:

All this, combined with a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit one of the most breathtaking destinations, situated among the clouds, should make LAPT Lima not only one of the best events on the poker calendar, but also one of the most memorable.
