The characteristic essence of this tour was reflected in its final table, as up to four different nationalities returned among the 9 finalists to try to win the title. In the end, however, it was the local Barranqueiros who took home the coveted trophy and $125,094 in prize money.
This final day was fast-paced, and the final table lasted no more than four hours, with Jorge Ramella and Gloria Molina finishing in second and third place, respectively.
