The Main Event of the partypoker LIVE Latin American Poker Championship kicks-off today at the beautiful Enjoy Punta del Este in Uruguay. The $1,100 buy-in event will have four flights, two today and two more tomorrow, with a 100,000 starting stack.

Players will enjoy 40-minute levels and will have the chance to re-enter the tournament only once. They will also have the chance to win their seat through the mega satellites that will run today at 14:00 and 19:00 local time, both guaranteeing at least 50 seats each.

This event will finish on Sunday with the final eight players fighting for the title. The event also guarantees $1 million dollars taking the tournaments in South America to a new whole level.

Here's what has already happened across a phenomenally popular poker festival.
