And the Punta Cana Poker Classic Winners are...

And The Winners are...

The first three Punta Cana Poker Classic Main Event titles might have gone to Canadians and Americans, but the recipient of this year’s trophy and $171,100 first place prize wasn’t guaranteed to be from North America. The final table featured a good mix of players, who collectively hailed from five different countries.
Heading into the final table, the chip lead was held by Chilean Leonel Otazo, who sat with 2.475 million in chips. Right behind him was Canadian Chanracy Khun, with 2.36 million. While the bottom three spots were occupied by Americans Anthony Zinno (615,000), Bovada’s Johnathan Iacovelli (495,000) and Stuart Marshak (195,000), Bovada’s own American Derrick Scott sat in 3rd place with 1.25 million in chips. Rounding out the November 9 were Guillermo Olvera of Mexico in 4th (940,000), Gabriel Diaz of Peru in 5th (885,000), and Patrick Serda of Canada in 6th (650,000).
