We counted up the fiches during the day’s first break at the Latin American Poker Tour Peru Main Event, and here’s how the stacks looked among the final four:
Claudio Moya (Chile) — 3,233,000
Daniel Ramirez (Colombia) — 1,740,000
Chadi Moustapha (Lebanon) — 1,700,000
Cristian Aceiton Ruiz (Chile) — 413,000
The blinds stepped aside, and Moustapha didn’t hesitate before making the call.
The Chilean needed help from the board, but none of the five cards nor any combination thereof gave it as they came 7♠K♥7♦5♣4♦.
Moustapha and Ruiz shook hands, and Moya came around the table to give his fellow countryman a hug before he headed to the opposite corner of the poker room to collect his prize for finishing fourth ($58,060).
Claudio Moya (Chile) — 3,047,000
Chadi Moustapha (Lebanon) — 2,372,000
Daniel Ramirez (Colombia) — 1,822,000
But after a few minutes of talk the trio decided to play on, and so onward they go, each still seeking the $156,576 first prize and LAPT Main Event trophy that goes with it.
