Remarkably, but in 2010, Jose Barbero failed twice to win the LAPT tournaments that were held in Uruguay and Peru. In 2013 he had the opportunity to make a hat-trick, but unfortunately,  he finished third in the tournament which was held in Chile. Thus, having obtained the third title, he became the absolute champion of the series.
