LAPT tournament in Mexico suspended

Pokerstars’ Latin American Poker Tour’s first visit to Mexico may be its last. Play started on Friday with 242 players paying $2,500+200 to play at the Marival Resort in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. It appears that corrupt government officials weren’t paid off there were some sort of procedural issues that weren’t completed (there are no casinos in Mexico, so Pokerstars apparently had to get a waiver for this tournament). Play was suspended late Friday with 89 players remaining in the tournament with the hope that play will resume at noon local time Saturday. Pauly is down there right now, doing live updates and reporting for Pokernews, so expect more on this developing story throughout the day.
