Money Bubble Approaching in Event #12

We are down to just 15 players in the 7 Handed Pot-Limit Omaha 8 or Better Event, and only 12 of them are going to walk away with some extra cash in their wallets. Amongst those still in contention are WSOP bracelet winner Mitch Schock, Mike Noori, who finished 2nd after a four way chop in Event #4, Los Angeles regular Allen Le, and Joey Deluca, who just took down the No-Limit H.O.R.S.E Event last night for nearly $5,000.  We will post the full winners report once the tournament finishes up later tonight, so be sure to come back later!

We Are in the Money for Event #11

We are down to our final 12 here in Event #11, meaning that the money bubble has broken. As Matt Savage reported on twitter, that unlucky bubble boy, was none other than ESPN poker commentator Norman Chad.



Amongst those who are fortunate enough to still be in contention for the Remington trophy are WSOP bracelet winner Rob Turner, Los Angeles tournament regular Alan Myerson, and online legend Yuval "yuvee04" Bronhstein, who appears to be our chip leader at the moment. Stay tuned to find out who takes down the title! 




By the Numbers: Event #12 $240 7 Handed Pot-Limit Omaha 8 or Better

The afternoon event drew a total players, creating a prize pool of $18,900. The top 12 players will be making the money tonight, with the min payout being worth $390. When the dust settles, the victor will walk home with a payday of $5,320, as well as a beautiful Remington trophy. There are 35 players left vying for the title. Good luck to them all!

1. $5,320
2. $3,730
3. $2,390
4. $1,770
5. $1,330
6. $1,060

10-12. $390

What's Coming Up: Friday, January 30th

The work week is wrapping up tomorrow, but the action isn't slowing down at the Commerce Casino! We have five tournaments going on tomorrow, starting with the newly revamped Bankroll Builder starting at 11 AM. Now, instead of starting off with 5,000 in chips, players are starting with 10,000, giving players more play in the beginning of the tournament.

From there, we turn our attention to the 1 PM event, a $350 H.O.R.S.E tournament with a $25,000 Guaranteed prize pool. Registration for that event will be open until 5 PM. Starting at 6 PM, we have the $75 Facebook exclusive event, where all you have to do to qualify is "Like" Commerce Casino on Facebook! Registration for that event will be open until 8:15, and all levels will be 20 minutes!

To wrap up the night, we have our nightly satellites: the $225 Super Satellite to the Main Event at 7 PM, and the $150 Mega Satellite at 9, where three $1,100 tickets will be guaranteed!

Event #12 Update: $15,000 Guarantee Already Met

We've missed out on our guarantee in the afternoon events the last two days, but that won't be happening in today's 7 handed Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better Event. With just under an hour left to register, we have had 72 players enter, making for a prize pool of $15,120.  If you want to play some short handed PLO-8, then come on down to the Commerce Casino in the next hour and take your shot at a Remington trophy!

By the Numbers: Event #11 $350 Omaha 8/Stud 8

The half Stud 8 half Omaha 8 or Better event drew a total of 114 players, creating a prize pool of $34,200. The final 12 players will be making the money tonight, with all 12 of them earning a payday of at least $940. Everyone at the final table will earn a four-figure payday, and the player who takes down the tournament will walk away with a Remington trophy, and $9,430 for their efforts. There are currently 64 players who are still in the event. Good luck to all of them!

1. $9,430
2. $6,700
3. $4,260
4. $3,040
5. $2,440
6. $1,830
7. $1,520
8. $1,220
9-12. $940

Some Notables in the 7-Handed Omaha 8 or Better Event

The afternoon tournament is in full swing, and it's drawn a myriad of faces familiar to the LA poker scene. This list includes Tony Ma, who has his eyes set on another final table here at the LA Poker Classic. We also have Mitch Schock, who won a bracelet at the 2012 WSOP. In addition, we spotted Eric Garcia, who is looking for his second title this week after taking down the Crazy Pineapple 8 or Better event Tuesday night.

The second event of the day has kicked off here at the 2015 LAPC, and it's another mixed game event. This time around, it's a $240 buy-in 7-handed Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better with a guaranteed prize pool of $15,000. Players will get 7,500 when they start, and registration is open until 7:15 tonight. Click here for a full structure of the event, and be sure to stay tuned for photos and numbers updates from this tournament!

Some Familiar Faces in Today's Omaha 8/Stud 8 Tournament

We went around the floor of today's event and spotted several players who also took part in yesterday's Stud-8 or better event. This list includes Yuval Bronshtien, who has dominated the mixed games online and live in the past few years. We also saw the return of ESPN poker commentator Norman Chad, who is hoping to do better than yesterday, where he was eliminated in the middle of the day. Check out their photos, and a few more, below!

Prize Pool Update for Event #11

We wanted to pass along that just over 90 minutes into the day, we have had 95 players register for the $350 half Omaha 8/ half Stud 8 or Better Event, meaning the posted guarantee of $25,000 has already been met. Registration is available until 5 PM today, so you still have plenty of time to come down and get in on the mixed game action!

Cards in the Air: $350 Omaha/Stud 8 or Better

We have another round of mixed games here at the 2015 LAPC, as the first event of the day has kicked off. This tournament is a half Omaha 8 or Better, half Stud 8 or Better tournament, with a $350 buy-in, and a guaranteed prize pool of $25,000. Players start with 10,000 in chips, and registration will be open until 5 PM today. Click here for a full structure of the event.

If you can't make it out in time for this tournament, we have a 7-max Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better event with a $15,000 Guaranteed prize pool starting at 5 PM. Good luck players!
