Final Table of the Seven Handed Event Now Streaming

With the Main Event now wrapped up, we have moved the seven handed final table to the live stream. Keven Stamment holds a massive lead over the rest of the table, but he still has some stiff competition. Check out the live stream here, and good luck to the final seven.

Day 3 Ends With Peter Tran Leading the Final 43

The money bubble burst in the middle of the day, and we got down to less than five tables in the 2015 LAPC Main Event by days end. Peter Tran, who bagged the Day 1 chip lead, has once again taken the poll position, bagging a massive stack of 1.369 million. Next in line is WSOP APAC High Roller winner Mike Leah, who will bring 1.185 million into tomorrow's play. Some of the other notables still left in this packed field are Daniel Negreanu, Greg Mueller, Shawn Buchanon, Erik Seidel, Brian Yoon, and last year's runner up Glenn Lafaye. Check below for the top few stacks left, and come back later for a full breakdown of the chip counts, as well as seating assignments for all 43 players. Play resumes at 12 tomorrow, so make sure to come back and tune in to all the coverage. Good luck players!

Final Table Photos and Chip Counts for Event #48

Below you will find photos and chip counts for the unofficial final table of the Seven Handed No-Limit Hold'em Day 2. Leading the way is defending WPT Championship winner Keven Stammen, who took down a massive pot off of Jake Toole as we left the table to up his stack to 1.2 million. He has nearly a third of the chips in play at the final table. Check below to see who else is there, and be sure to stay tuned to find out who takes the event down!

Seat 4: Zhong Wang- 155,000

Seat 6: Jake Toole- 70,000 (short stack) 
Seat 7: Tyler Patterson- 325,000
Seat 8: Keven Stammen- 1.2 million (chip leader)

Two Seats Guaranteed in the $5,100 Satllite

We are now up to 21 players in the $5,100 Mega Satellite, which means there will be at least two tickets up for grabs for tomorrow's $50,000 High Roller Event. Registration is open for another 30 minutes, so there is still time to come down and take your shot at this satellite!

Eliminations 55-63 in Main Event

We have the first table of bustouts in the money in the Main Event. Below you will see all nine players who have busted in the money so far. They all took home $19,050 for their efforts.

55. Sameer Aljanedi
56. John Canawati
57. David Tuthill
58. Ryan Laplante
59. Eran Gold
60. Gordon Vayo

Featured Table Being Streamed Live

We don't have all the bells and whistles working on the live stream, but we did want to pass along that a camera is set up on our stacked featured table. You can view the link by clicking here, and read below for a seating chart to see who is there.

Seat 1: Darren Elias
Seat 2: Scott Seiver
Seat 3: Paul Chanderson
Seat 4: Anthony Zinno
Seat 5: Adam Volen
Seat 6: Tim Cramer
Seat 7: Ryan Fee
Seat 8: Nick Shkolnik
Seat 9: Yegor Tsurikov

We also wanted to share quite the story about the nine seat, Yegor Tsurikov. He came into the day as the shortest stack in the room, with only 16,600 at 1,200-2,400. He moved all in in the first level with pocket fours, and he was dominated by the Kings of Anthony Zinno. Tsurikov caught a four in the window, but that was quickly followed by a King as well on the flop. No matter for Tsurikov, as he caught his one outer, the [4s] on the turn, to score the wild double up.

Well Tsurikov has spun that 16,600 into a stack of 520,000, which is nearly double the average stack in the room. While not quite a chip and a chair, it's still one of the more impressive days of tournament poker we've seen this series.

Cards in the Air: $5,100 Mega Satellite for the High Roller

We wanted to pass along that cards are in the air for the $5,100 Satellite to tomorrow's $50,000 High Roller Event. Right now, we have seven players registered, meaning there will be a seat up for grabs with three more entrants. Players are allow to reenter into the satellite, and registration is open until 7:10 local time. Good luck players, and stay tuned to find out who ships the seat(s)

Matt Berkey is the Bubble Boy

It took a bit over an hour, but the bubble has burst at the 2015 LAPC Main Event. It was pro vs. pro, as Matt Berkey got the last of his chips in with Ace-Nine. However, Mike Leah's Ace-Ten had Berkey just outkicked, and though Berkey turned some chop outs, he wasn't able to survive the hand. No one else was eliminated, meaning that Berkey is the official bubble boy.

With that, the 63 remaining players are all in the money! They have locked up $19,050, but they all have their eyes on that $1 million first place prize!

Some Snapshots From Today's $2,140 Pot-Limit Omaha

We went over to the $2,140 Pot-Limit Omaha event that kicked off at 4 PM to see who was vying for the crown. We spotted a mix of WSOP bracelet winners, along with local pros who are trying to win another title here at Commerce. We saw Brandon Shack-Harris and "Miami" John Cernuto, as well as Allen Le, Sasha Barrese, Rupesh Pattni, and Commerce Grand Slam winner Brian Brubaker.

The Main Event is on the Bubble

We have 64 players remaining in the Main Event, but one of them will leave empty handed today. We are just about to go on a break, so the tension will be lingering in the room for quite some time. We will be sure to report when the bubble has burst. Good luck players!

In the Money in the $2,140 Seven Handed Event

While most of our attention today has been focused on the Main Event, we did want to pass along that the $2,140 7 handed event is now in the money. The two big stacks in the room, Tyler Patterson (340,000), and Jack Duong (325,000), happen to be rubbing elbows at the same table, so there should be plenty of action there. Below you will find a full list of players who are still alive and vying for the title. Once we get down to the final table, we will post photos and chip counts of those players.

Cards in the Air: Event #49 $2,140 7 Handed PLO

It's time for another post Main Event tournament here at the Commerce Casino! Today's event is a $2,140 buy-in 7 Handed Pot-Limit Omaha Event. Players will start with 20,000 in chips, and registration is open until 8:30 tonight. Play will end after Level 12, or once we reach the final table, whichever comes first. Click here for a structure of the event, and stay tuned for updates throughout the day!

And the First Player Over One Million Chips is......

Peter Tran. The man who bagged the Day 1 chip lead has continues his incredible success so far in this event, as he is the first player with over one million chips. To put that in prespective, the 2nd biggest stack, Brent Hart, has just over 600,000. Tran is at a tough table, with Daniel Negreanu to his direct right, but that hasn't slowed him down today. Can he keep stacking chips as the money bubble looms?

Peter Tran- 1.1 million

Two Players Looking for Back-to-Back Final Tables

We came into the day with half of last year's TV final table still alive and looking for a repeat run. However, Michael Rocco was one of the first causalities of the day, and that leaves us with two players from last year's final table. Runner-Up Glenn Lafaye, and 6th place finisher Adam Friedman, are still alive with just 84 players left. If one of them is able to make it back to the final six, they would be the first player to final table the same WPT Main Event since Mohsin Charania finished 5th and 1st in 2012 and 2013 at WPT Paris.

Down to Just 90 Players in the Main Event

We started the day with 120 players, and we've already lost 25% of the field. We are down to our final 90 players, and one of them will walk away a millionaire on Thursday. We will be playing down to the money today, so stay tuned to find out who makes it to that plateau.

Stacked Feature Table

The LAPC is always full of tough tables from start to finish, and today is no exception. The feature table of the day, however, is one of the toughest you will see at any tournament in the world. Read below to see who is at that table, along with a few facts about just how tough it is.  Even crazier is the fact that the two players knocked out at this table were former LAPC Champion Paul Klann, and WSOP Circuit Main Event Winner Nipun Java!

Total Winnings at Table: $37,429,145
WSOP Bracelets: 2
WPT Titles: 7
High Roller Titles: 8

Seat 1- Darren Elias 
Seat 2: Scott Seiver
Seat 3: Igor Kurganov
Seat 4: Anthony Zinno 
Seat 6: Marvin Rettenmaier
Seat 7: Aaron Massey 
Seat 8: Adam Friedman

Cards in the Air: #WPT #LAPC Main Event Day 3

Today is the day we make the money in the LAPC Main Event! 120 players are coming back to play today, but just over half of them, 63, will end up making the money. The plan is to play five levels today, but if we haven't made the money by the end of the fifth level, we will play on until we do.

Brent Hart leads the way with 487,900, which has the rest of the field covered by 100,000.  Michael Kamran, who finished 6th at this event in 2010, is in second with 387,400. You can view the full list of chip counts and seating chart here, and be sure to stay tuned for all the coverage today, as we make our push to the money!
