Karl Hevroy had almost double the chips than any of the other players when the final table begun last Saturday. Karl Hevroy continued playing amazing poker on the final table and kept the lead until he was the last man standing. For the win he received USD$283,500 and wrote history as he became the first poker player to win a LAPT event with a prize pool greater than USD$1 million.

The 22 year old Norwegian poker player bought in straight to the LAPT Punta del Este main event for $3500+$200 and was very anonymous the first day of the tournament. But during day 2 he played some amazing poker and managed to build up a stack of over 1 million in chips, which was almost the double of any of the other remaining players in the tournament.

Final table:
On the final table no one could keep up with him and there was no doubt that he would take home the tournament when he played heads up against Alejandro De Arruabarrena, from Uruguay. For the win he received USD$283,500 and wrote history as he became the first player to win a LAPT event with a prize pool greater than USD$1 million.

The two PokerStars online qualifiers Ron Wasiel from USA and Oliver Rowe from Canada ended up on 4th and 5th place.
