The 125th Argentine Polo Open resumed on Monday after the delays caused by the G20, which took place in Buenos Aires on Friday and Saturday. As in 2017, ten teams, with a maximum handicap of 40-goals, are in competition.

First up, La Dolfina claimed a convincing win over La Ensenada, in what was one of their best matches in the competition so far. Up next, on ground one, La Aguada defeated Alegría-La Irenita; as a result, the latter have been knocked out of the 2019 Argentine Triple Crown.

The final is scheduled for Saturday, December 15th.
