Good Turnout For The Latin American Poker Tour Grand Final

Yuri Martens takes home $169,652 after besting a field of 426

This year's Latin American Poker Tour Grand Final, held in Sao Paulo Brazil, attracted a field of 426 punters prepared to lay down $2,572 each to compete in the eighth annual edition of the event.
In a close-run heads up Brazilian Yuri Martens faced Afonso Henrique, with the two professionals pausing to negotiate a chop before continuing play.

Other final table pay-outs included:
Andres Herrera $85,548
Ricardo Chauriye $67,948
