LSOP Millions: A tournament with original concept, 48 survivors in the Day 1A
Last weekend was marked by the departure of the poker tournament Latin Series of Poker Millions, in Latin America. The concept is rather original because the participants will come in the poker room of Majestic Casino of Panama City, in Panama, only in the beginning of the Day 2. The Days 1 will take place in several casinos on the American continent, like those of Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Honduras, Columbia, Chili as well as the Dominican Republic. This new concept enables players to avoid wasting money for the travel, the accommodation, the food in Panama, before being assured to be paid. In fact, players qualified for the Day 2 will be already in the money of this Main Event with a guaranteed prizepool of $1 million.
During the Day 1A of the weekend, 10% of the field received their tickets for the Day 2. Already champion of the European Poker Tour and of the Latin America Poker Tour, Jose « Nacho » Barbero was the chipleader of the day, with a stack of 336,000 chips on a total of 48 players. The Argentinian counts a gain of $2.3 million in career, among which $800,000 in the High Roller tournament of the EPT London 2010 and other six-digit paid places in the WPT, WSOP and LAPT. Among the best placed in terms of chipcount at the start of the Day 2, we find Rafael Pardo (333,500), Phillip Nagy (200,000), Ryan Smith (189,000), Jonathan Brown (164,500), Khaled Nassief (154,500), Roman Valerstein (154,500) and other players such as Zennawi Petros, Ferdinando Giuseppe Decorato, Pablo Toimil, Ben Warrington, Nickolas Davies, Donys Agenelli, Toma Haralampiev or Oscar Ortiz, who are at more than 100,000 chips.
