Much like how Nacho Barbero broke down the state of poker play in Argentina, former PokerStars sponsored pro talks with PokerNews about the growth of poker in Mexico.
From his former employer’s Barcelona event, Guillen declares that poker is on the verge of going “insane” in Mexico…just as soon as the law allows for a major tournament to take place there. While online poker is popular, the live scene is both a little small (represented by a few electronic tables) and a little illegal. Not 100% illegal, mind you, just not 100% legal.
Watch Guillen as he talks about the underground swell of support for poker in his country of Mexico.
