$2,700 Nuevo Vallarta Main Event

Day 1 Suspended

The sun sets on the LAPT Mexico
Day 1 of the PokerStars.com Latin America Poker Tour in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico has been suspended until further notice due to an unknown issue with local gaming officials.

Well, needless to say, this has been one of the most interesting days of tournament poker that I have covered. 242 players started the event and the top 27 get paid prize money. There are 89 players remaining... and waiting in limbo. Tournament officials are hopeful that the problem will be resolved by tomorrow morning.

Day 2 was scheduled to start at noon local time on Saturday. Check back in for updates on when the tournament will conclude. As soon as we get word, we'll pass it along to you.

Well, I guess that's it for now. Buenas noches y buena suerte.
