The Latin Series of Poker Millions, a $1 million guaranteed tournament happening in Panama this March 2014,will revolutionize poker tournaments by spreading the Day 1 tables through several casinos all over Latin America.
“It’s a $1 million guaranteed tournament and it costs just $850 to get into,” stated the LSOP administration. The goal is that by hosting in several cities across Latin America , a larger showing will happen. Maybe the $1,000,000 guarantee will exceed expectations. The major tournament is from March 7th to the 15th but day one is scattered across several cities with a buy-in of $850.
So instead of players needing to go to Panama and put up money for a hotel and expenses , they will instead get that out of the way and be in the money right away for the next day. Day 2 happens in Panama but Day 1 is a series of poker tournaments across Latin America several weeks before Day 2.
While Day 2 continues in Panama, Day 1 events are schedule to take place several weeks earlier at a number of casinos around the world. Locations for the Day 1 tournaments will be .
Poker players who sail through Day 1 in their city will earn a seat at the Day 2 table in Panama. Advancing players will be in the money right away and will move to Panama with the chip stack they ended with on Day 1. Day 1A will also be held in Panama for players who prefer to play the tournament in Panama.
Several online sites are giving away packages or have satellite seats including America’s Cardroom, BetCRIS, Ya Poker and Black Chip Poker.
