December 3, 2016 ended with the last LAPT tournament this year, which took place within the Brazilian Series Of Poker. The winner inthis tournament was a professional poker player Jose Barbero.
The three-day tournament which was held in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, has collected only regional professionals. Buy-in in this tournament was R $ 8,000 (about $ 2,3k). The final table Jose Barbero nicknamed “NACHO”, met resistance from opponents than he took in top 3, when he offered a deal arranging the shortest stack. Players agree to divide the money leaving the winner of the additional R $ 93,114.
Jose “Nacho» Barbero – $ 99,072
Thiago Grigoletto – $ 79,906
Felipe Passini – $ 91,404
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.
