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!

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.

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)

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!

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.

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!

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.

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|

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.

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.

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!

WSOP Bracelets: 2
WPT Titles: 7

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!
