Bring down LAPT Mexico as part of Team Mexico

Dear PokerStars player,

The Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT) is set to explode back into action, as Season 2 gets underway. As more and more players take up the sport and the poker world expands, so too does the LAPT, with the introduction of several new stops on the tour, including the inaugural LAPT Nuevo Vallarta event in Mexico!

To celebrate this new event, we’re giving you a special opportunity to test your poker skills against your countrymen for an LAPT Nuevo Vallarta package valued at $5,000 USD, AND to fly the flag for Mexico at the LAPT... FOR FREE.

If you have the skill and the nerve to defeat the best your nation has to offer, you could find yourself as part of the elite Team Mexico. You’ll then compete to become the first ever LAPT Nuevo Vallarta Champion.

How to qualify
We’re running nightly freerolls until November 21 which advance the top 9 players to the second stage of qualifying to be played on November 23. The eventual winner of the stage two will not only receive a place on their country’s team, but they will also receive the $5,000 full prize package (which includes the tourney buy-in, hotel accommodation and cash for travel expenses) for LAPT Nuevo Vallarta and the opportunity to claim a share of the estimated 6 million pesos* prize pool!

The Team Mexico Freerolls are located under the Tourney > Regional tab in your PokerStars game lobby. Play for free and you may win big, for FREE!

More about the LAPT
Season 2 kicked off with LAPT San Jose on November 3, before moving onto LAPT Nuevo Vallarta for the second stop on the tour in Mexico starting on December 5. Satellites to LAPT Nuevo Vallarta are running now. You can win your seat in any of our Cash and FPP satellites, and also qualify with our Steps Sit & Go's from as little as $7.50 or 500 FPPs. Find all our LAPT satellites for every event under the Events > LAPT tab in your PokerStars lobby.
