It was Colombia’s Adalfer Morales Gamarra who finished as Day 1C chip leader in the $1,100 Main Event at the partypokerLIVE Latin American Poker Championship. After manoeuvring his way through twelve 40-minute levels, Adalfer finished atop the pile of 317 entrants with a huge stack worth 923,5000.
Other players who qualified for Day 2 include Brazilian poker pro Bruno Kawauti, Uruguay’s all-time number nine Cesar Sanguinetti, and sixth on the Chile all-time money list Ricardo Chauriye.
Day 2 will see one less partypoker patch than anticipated as partypoker’s Team Online pro Renato Nomura was not so lucky, and was eliminated just a few levels before the end of the day.
During the latter of today’s two flights, in Day 1D, the total player count surpassed 1,000. In doing so, partypoker met the huge $1,000,0000 guarantee with two hours of late registration to spare.
Action continues tomorrow at midday local time, where surviving players from all four Day 1’s will return to battle it out through a further eight levels in one of South America’s biggest ever poker events. The blind levels from Day 2 onward have been increased to 60 minutes and will restart at the recently-introduced 3,500/7,000 level.
Tomorrow also sees the start of the $220 Finale event, which offers a $200,000 guaranteed prizepool. The Finale promises to see the festival out with a bang, with a 30-minute clock and unlimited re-entries through the first eight levels of the twelve to be played.
There are two flights scheduled to be played tomorrow, the first of which begins at noon, with the second at the later time of 5pm. Saturday will see two more flights played, again at noon and 5pm, before players return on Sunday at noon to play down to a winner.
The $2,200 High Roller will also kick-off tomorrow, at 2pm local time. With 40-minute long levels and a 100,000 starting stack, this event also boasts a $200,000 guarantee and unlimited re-entry. Registration will remain open until the end of level nine, with Day 1 concluding after twelve levels of play.
