One hand of heads up action seals the victory
Norwegian player Karl Hevroy is the new PokerStars Latin American Poker Tour Punta del Este champ, taking a first prize of $283 500 to his northern home after defeating Alejandro De Arruabarrena of Uruguay in a fast, one-hand heads up that left the second placed De Arruabarrena with a $155 420 payday.
The quick victory was expected; Hevroy not only dominated the final table - he had a 6 to 1 chip advantage going into the heads up and he exploited it to the full.
The brief heads up was the culmination of three days of tough tournament poker which saw 327 players in the entry field, creating a record million dollar prize pool for the South American classic tourney.
Other final tablers for the event were Angel GuillÃ©n, Ron Wasiel, Oliver Rowe, Waldemar Cogo, Bolivar Palacios Vasquez, Magno Aragao and Andre Ventura.
