Results:

Thursday October 25, 2012: Ellerstina Etiqueta Negra claims their 6th consecutive win in the Tortugas Open & 10th time overall, defeating once again in the final, La Dolfina Hope Funds 12-11. Officials rescheduled this much anticipated final of the 70th Tortugas Open, for Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 15:30 at Palermo as the Tortugas Country Club polo fields were still too wet from recent rains. This is the 1st time this has happened since the Tortugas Country Club started managing this event. In 1983, when it was a different tournament organized by 2 different clubs, their final, after being postponed from excessive rains, was also moved to Palermo.

Monday October 15, 2012: Once again, La Dolfina and Ellerstina will play in the final of the Tortugas Open. The Ellerstina team are the defending champions but La Dolfina is on fire with a well-worked out game strategy earlier than last season. The deciding moment will be at the end of the final to be played on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 15:30 at the Tortugas Country Club in Argentina.

Recent rains & wet fields have postponed the semifinal games & in addition the final. Please view the updated schedule below.
