With less than 24 hours until another Americas Super Classic, Brazil and Argentina decide the winner of the final LAPT Main Event of 2023. The showdown between Luís Rigos from Paraná and Andrés Read from Argentina had everything a rivalry needs: ecstatic fans, excitement conclusion and green and yellow party. The 4Bet team sprinted to an unprecedented victory after overcoming a nearly 6-1 deficit. The winner received R$792,000 in one transaction, while the runner-up added R$648,000 to their balance.

Lucas entered the final day as the leader and had no problem confirming his presence in the decider. He was just a few big blinds shy of CL Kim de Sousa to regain the lead. The player from São José dos Pinhais has always had an excellent stack, with a stack of 13,450,000 at the 7-hand stage and a reading of 2,355,000.

In order to catch Lucas, the German had to overcome Yuri Rodrigues ‘ A ❖K❖ with a 9♠ 9 flip to retain the title. The two then killed several more opponents until they were tied.

Reed successfully reversed the situation, and just as he was heading towards victory, his reaction surprised Lucas. Since the two were effectively a draw, the heads-up decision was as follows:

The blinds were 300,000/600,000, BB ante, Read min-raise, then four bets pushed to 19,800.000 announced. Lucas decided to call with fewer chips and showed 6♠6♦. Read is controlled by A 10 ♠ and cannot be saved by 3 ♠ 8 ♣ 7 ♦ Q ♥ J ♥ cards. With only 2 BBS remaining, Read was given some breathing room on the next hand, but his reaction was short-lived. Another all-in preflop, he lost with A 8 ♦ against 10 6 ♠ when the dealer showed 6♣2♠9♠A♥5♦.

With a total of 771 entrants, the Main Event, held at the BSOP Millions Hall in São Paulo, topped the guaranteed prize pool of R$1.5 million, raising R$4,736,360.
