LAPT6 Chile: Numbers don't favor the Team Pros

In many ways, poker is a game of numbers. Chips, big blinds, bets, players, levels, average stack, players remaining - they're all about numbers.

LAPT6 Chile: The smile

Humor me with a thought exercise, if you would. I'd like you to imagine a table of nine poker players who are playing in an $1,100 no-limit hold'em tournament. Got your image?

LAPT6 Chile: Sheirbon sets up shop

The first LAPT event I ever covered was the kick-off event for Season 2 in San Jose, Costa Rica. That was a time when Americans dominated LAPT events. Indeed, at the final table in Costa Rica that year only Maria Stern and Venezuela's Jesus Bertoli could claim any affiliation with the region. The re...more
