What's Coming Up: Sunday, February 14th

It might be Valentine's Day tomorrow, but that doesn't mean the poker action slows down here at the Commerce Casino! In addition to the Day 2 finals of this massive $300,000 Guaranteed Event, we will be continuing our $1,100 buy-in tournaments. This time though, we are moving to the mixed games, as the $1,100 H.O.R.S.E Event will be kicking off at 1 PM. Registration will be open until 5:30, and the Day 2 finals will be starting up on Monday at 2 PM. Good luck all!

Cards in the Air: $1,100 Main Event Satellite

It's time to kick off another big buy-in Saturday satellite here at the LAPC. The buy-in for this event is $1,100, and there will be at least two Main Event seats handed out. Players start with 7,500 in chips, and registration and re-entry will be open until about 9:15 tonight. All levels will be 30 minutes. Good luck all!

By the Numbers: Final Flight of Event #35

The final flight of this $300,000 Guaranteed Event drew a tournament high 472 players, meaning that we fell just short of half a million dollars in the prize pool. This means that 47 more tickets will be punched to the Day 2 finals tomorrow, while 48-54th places will all be earning $875. Stay tuned for a full breakdown of the payouts to be posted shortly!

1-47. Advance to Day 2
48-54. $875

Some More Players Photos From Today's Final Flight

Our next round of player pictures can be viewed below. We spotted two players fresh off the final table of the $1,100 Event earlier this week: Jesse Yaginuma, who finished 7th, and Matt Salsberg, who won after a four way chop. We also found Don Zewin, who just took down the 2-7 Triple Draw Event on Thursday.

First Round of Snapshots From Flight 1C

Our first round of photos includes a couple players who have already enjoyed some success at this year's LAPC so far. Thu Nguyen took down the $570 Heads-Up Event last week for $8,500, while Tommy San chopped up the $300,000 Guaranteed Event at the end of January for over $40,000. We also spotted Chris Hinchcliffe, who is taking a break from the Norcal poker scene to join us down here for the weekend.

Event #35 Prize Pool Now Over $450,000!

We are approaching 400 players in this third and final starting flight of this 35th event of the LAPC. That means that the prize pool is over $450,000, and could crack the half million mark when all is said and done in about 90 minutes. If you haven't registered yet, hurry on down and join us. You don't want to miss this one!

Cards in the Air: Final Flight of the $300,000 Guaranteed Event

Today is the final day of qualifying for this massive $300,000 Guaranteed Event. After the first two days, the prize pool already has over $250,000 in it, and given that today should be the biggest of the three days, it's possible the prize pool will approach half a million dollars!

Registration will be open until 5 PM today, and all players will be allowed one re-entry as well. The top 10% will be moving on to tomorrow's finals at 2 PM, where all levels will be 40 minutes until the final table, when they will be upped to 60 minutes. Good luck everyone!
