Also, I am not too familiar with the LSOP. Do you get bracelets like you do in the WSOP? Is a win at the LSOP considered to be as good as a WSOP win?
would love to get some feedback.
No you do not need to speak Spanish.
I have never played in an LSOP event, but I would assume its the exact same as any other similar buyin tourney + the luxury of vacationing in a different atmosphere.
No bracelets, but cash. Also if I recall from last year, BCP ran these and they had a fine print that I DID not like. (Or this could be for their Punta Cana promo) But basically it was if you win they will credit your account with eCash and not cash @ the actually tourney, which I think is a joke.
I also know many people were trying to sell their packages for far less than what they were worth. Maybe people don't want to visit where it is at? Maybe its not the best structure? I really don't know as I don't play on ACR/BCP and had no interest in winning.
