Chilean Alex Manzano wins LAPT Brazil

The Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT) has come a long in its short history. What began as a three tournament series played in the previously untapped markets of Central and South America, has blossomed into six stops for Season 4, with buy-ins that have doubled from the original $2,500. There was no better indication of the LAPT’s growth than at the recently concluded LAPT Brazil Championship where the tour broke the 400 player ceiling for the first time –not only did they break the ceiling, they shattered it, with 536 registering for the tournament!

Despite a final table loaded with Brazilians it was Chilean Alex Manzano who would come out on top of the largest field in LAPT history –as well as the largest overall prize-pool in the history of the tour, and Manzano was awarded the second largest sum in the tour’s history.

Here is a look at how the final 8 players fared at the LAPT Brazil Championship:

· Alex Manzano — $615,840
· Joao Bauer — $352,760
· Marcelo Fonseca — $224,800
· Marcio Motta — $165,000
· Leandro Csome — $117,190
· Santiago Nadal — $93,270
· Henrique Bernardes — $69,350
· Bruno Politano — $45,440

The next stop on Season 4 of the LAPT will be on Manzano’s home turf of Chile, as the tour heads to Vina Del Mar, Chile for the LAPT Chile National Poker Championship beginning March 17th, 2011.

Message from the CEO

No one really wants to Lose

Of course, no one plans on losing, what’s the point in playing the game if you don’t plan on cashing in? Although losing is never our intention, sometimes silly mistakes are done that result in failure to cash out; so let us explore these unintentional habits that sometimes leave us walking away empty.

Poor hand selection -  If you are playing particularly every hand dealt you are falling into a rat trap and will eventually tilt, do not try and hold on to a hand that practically stands no change to a draw or a pot. Calculate the odds, the pot odds and the implied hand odds, also pay attention to the persons you are playing with and your position along with the game limits.
Remember “if you can’t spot the fish at the table, you’re the fish” ~ Rounders

Gutshots - Drawing a gutshot means you are hoping for one card to make your hand. Holding out for that one card will without a doubt cost you money. Think about what your minimum bet is and how many times you will be called or even raised and all this just to see what the next card maybe in anticipation of you possibly making a hand.
Regardless of how good you dealt hand was you have to know when to fold it…following your gut isn’t always the best way to play poker.

Backdoor Flushes – This is even worse than gutshots. A backdoor flush means that you need the perfect two cards to complete your hand and they have to be of the same suit. If you really want to draw to such a hand then you must see if there are extra outs because if not, chances of you winning are very low. So if you thought holding out for one card was bad trying holding out for two and see what really happens to your bankroll.

Small pairs – A pair is a pair or is it? Some players play a pair of 3’s as it were a Pair of Aces, just refusing to let go a hand even on the river, just because “it’s a pair”!
Sure these hands are great but if not utilized to the max pre-flop the closer you get to the river the lower your odds of winning this hand become.  Our advice with a small pair, start your betting as if it were a pair of aces, but if anything higher starts to come out remember it isn’t as strong as your imagination makes it out to be…get rid of it!

At the end of the day, your bankroll reflects your purpose of play and you decide whether you’re a winner or loser at this game of poker. We all have good and bad days but knowing what contributes to a bad day is the difference between a winning player and a loosing player!
