Event #5 Flight 1B in the Money

Today's $250,000 Guaranteed Event is now in the money, and a familiar face holds a massive chip lead. Former WPT Winner Harry Arutyunyan has a huge stack of 350,000. It doesn't appear that anyone else still in has over 200,000, so it is an overwhelming lead as we set our eyes on the final table. Those nine players will be moving on to the finals on Sunday to compete for this massive prizepool.

Local Grinder Craig Chait Leads the Triple Stud Event

Craig Chait- Chip Leader

Local pro Craig Chait is a regular fixture at the mixed game events here at the LAPC, and he is making a splash in his first event this series, as he currently holds the chip lead in the Triple Stud Event. We are down to the final 24 players, but only the top 15 will be making the money. We are playing down to the final table tonight, so stay tuned to see if Chait is a part of the finals tomorrow!

Three Players Looking For Back-to-Back Final Tables

Earlier today the $350 Omaha 8-or-Better Event final table played out, with Jim Douglas emerging victorious after a five way chop. Three players who were at that final table, Michael Garner, Michael Coombs, and Roscow Light, hopped straight into the Triple Stud Event, and are still alive as we are nearly down to the final three tables. Back-to-back final tables would not only provide a great bankroll boost at the start of the series, but it will also give them a great start in the Player of the Series Standings.

Roscoe Light - 52,000

Michael Garner - 23,500

Michael Garner - 11,000
