Latin Series of Poker announces a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool in its first 2012 live poker event

Lima, Peru – February 3, 2012 - Organizers of the Latin Series of Poker (LSOP) announced today that they will guarantee half a million dollars in their first Live Poker Event in 2012. The Texas Hold'em tournament will be held from June 5th to June 10th at the Atlantic City Casino in Lima, Peru.

The LSOP has also announced that its $500,000 Main Event will feature a re-entry methodology destined to attract the "who's who" of online and live poker. The buy-in for this event has been announced to be $1,500+150, which gives the players a great value on such a high guarantee.

Qualifiers for the LSOP are now live on the Winning Poker Network, including fast-growing sites Americas Cardroom, BetCRIS, and TruePoker. In February alone, The Winning Poker Network is guaranteeing 13 prize packages, spread out over 13 separate events. Each package is valued at $3,500 and includes: the $1,500+150 Main Event buy-in; round-trip airfare up to $1,000; 5-night hotel accommodations in Lima, Peru; and airport-Hotel-Airport transportation in Lima.

US-poker players have been craving land-base poker tournaments ever since the Aruba Poker Classic ended its run in 2009. LSOP management noted that Winning Poker Network is the ideal online poker site to feed players to the LSOP tournament. In 2010, the network's core sites stepped up to the plate by sending players to the Punta Cana Poker Classic, which is now heading into its third year.
