Caio Hey wins the LAPT7 Brazil and R$680,000; Sbrissa denied a repeat title

It only took eight hands of heads-up play for Caio Hey to claim the rest of Victor Sbrissa's chips, denying him a repeat win at the LAPT Brazil. Hey began with 18.25 million to Sbrissa's 10.52 million and had whittled him down to 6.72 million when the final hand unfolded. From the small blind, Sbris...more

LAPT7: Ruiz out in third, assuring a Brazilian champion

In the centuries-old Brazil-Argentina rivalry, Brazil has won another round. With Joaquin Ruiz's third-place elimination, two Brazilians, Caio Hey and Victor Sbrissa, are now heads-up for the LAPT7 Brazil title. Earlier in the level, Sbrissa made a huge misstep vs. Ruiz, calling his 3.9 million rive...more

LAPT7 Brazil: Angel falls, Sako sacked

That was brutal. Angel Guillen has a few Sklansky bucks coming his way after getting his chips in as an overwhelming favorite, only to be shot down by running cards. In the hand previous, Hey moved in from the small blind and Guillen tanked for several minutes in the big blind before folding. Then o...more

LAPT7 Brazil: Final five swimming in shallow waters

We've just returned from the dinner break (soup of the day was "Cream of Peru," not sure what's in it but tasty enough) and our five remaining players are back in action. With the blinds up to 150,000/300,000 with a 40,000 ante, all of them have fewer than 30 big blinds to work with. Angel Guillen w...more

LAPT7: Cuco clocked in sixth, Sako doubles again

And then there were five. Moments after Angel Guillen doubled through Andre Cuco, the action folded around to Cuco in the hijack. He open-shoved for 1,620,000 with Q♥J♣ and Victor Sbrissa looked him up from the big blind with A♦8♠. Cheers, horn blasts, and "VAMOOOO" rang through the room as ...more

LAPT7 Brazil: Sbrissa sinks Franco, Guillen doubles

Air horns, beer-soaked fans, waving flags, and deafening chants. It's pandemonium to my delicate American ears, but for the folks inside the tournament room, it's nothing out of the ordinary. Brazilian final tables take on the aura of a rowdy football match, a stark contrast to the staredowns and ta...more

LAPT7 Brazil: Vascao vanquished, seven remain

The first hour of final table play here in Sao Paulo produced two key double-ups and one elimination. First to put his chips at risk was Alex Sako, who shoved from the big blind over Andre Cuco's opening raise. Cuco called, his A♣K♥ racing with 9♣9♠. Sako's pair held up and he doubled to 3,2...more

LAPT7 Brazil: Meet the final table

Welcome to the final table of the LAPT7 Brazil. We're only moments away from getting the cards in the air and already a sizable crowd has gathered to sweat the acton (including at least one guy armed with an air horn...wait, make that two).
