The Canadian poker team wins for the second successive time the trophy of the best American team of poker. The Americas Cup of Poker championship was set up as a preparatory step for the fourth Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT), which began on February 16 in Brazil. This edition of the Americas Cup of Poker took place at the Punta Del Este Mantra Resort Casino in Uruguay.
Several American teams including Mexico, Venezuela, Canada, and several other American nations have defended the colors of their country under the eyes of poker enthusiasts and professionals from around the world. However, Canada’s team, led by Canadian professional Greg Debora, defended their colors in front of a less experienced Mexican team. The Canadian players won $ 25,000.
