The PokerStars Latin American Poker Tour announced its schedule for Season Three and there’s a new addition to the schedule that isn’t so new: the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The $10,000 buy-in event has previously been a part of the World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour.
The LAPT will feature five events this year with the first event, the $2,500 LAPT Playa Conchal, being held November 19 – 22 in Costa Rica. After taking December off the LAPT will start 2010 in grand fashion at the Atlantis Bahamas with the PCA from January 4 – 14.
“I’m really happy that the tour will take in the PCA event in The Bahamas – it’s one of my favorite tournaments of the year – it’s got everything; with over 50 poker events and fun activities in the sun for friends and family,” said Andre Akkari, PokerStars pro.
From the Bahamas the LAPT moves to Uruguay for the $3,500 Punta del Este from February 24 – 27. The next stop is in Chile as Vina del Mar runs from March 20 – 23.
‘In just two seasons, the Latin American Poker Tour has become the biggest poker tour in the region. It attracts the best players from Latin America and all over the world,” said PokerStars pro and Costa Rican native Humberto Brenes. “Last season, the prize pool hit a million dollars in Costa Rica and I know we’re going to beat that this time! I am very proud to play in Costa Rica – it’s my home country and a very special event for me.”
The final stop on the schedule has yet to have dates solidified. The LAPT Grand Final will have a $5,000 buy-in and be held in Argentina.
