Last Chance for LAPT Costa Rica Satellites and Introducing EPT Prague and EPT Vilamoura (Portugal)

By Pauly

Here's the upcoming schedule for PokerStars events...
Nov 11-15 - APPT Cebu (Philippines)
Nov 17-22 - EPT Vilamoura (Portugal)
Nov 19-22 - LAPT Playa Conchal (Costa Rica)
Dec 1-6 - EPT Prague (Czech Republic)
Dec 1-6 - APPT Syndey (Australia)
I have been trying to win a seat to the LAPT Playa Conchal in Costa Rica over the past week or so. PokerStars is running daily satellites that guarantee at least one prize package worth $6,000 and I have yet to come close. I've finished 20th twice (out of 200+ runners) and 30th a second time (out of 300+). The daily $7 and $8 rebuys are soft but the turbo structures takes a significant amount of skill out of the mix -- which means anyone can win those sats. I'm confident that I'll make a breakthrough in the next week. Otherwise, I'll be selling pieces of myself.

Anyway, today at 18:45 ET, PokerStars is running a $530 qualifier to the LAPT Costa Rica. There will be one more next week on Halloween at the same time. Of course, Stars is running tons of super-satellites to win a seat to the $530. I was almost Bubble Boy in one of those sats.

If you're sick of Vegas or of sitting around in your underwear playing online poker, the Latin America Poker Tour gives you a chance to visit exotic countries and live life on the edge. Plus, the fields are super soft. How soft? I'm playing in their $2,500 Main Event.

The next two stops on the European Poker Tour are Portugal and the Czech Republic. The buy-ins to both events are 5,000 Euros. Satellites are currently running on PokerStars. The Czech Republic is one of the most fascinating cities in Eastern Europe and the EPT will be making their first appearance in Portugal.
