First 2 Players Paid Out In the Survivor

For those who may not be familiar, Commerce does their Survivor tournaments a little differently than other rooms. Once the field has reached 25%, 20%, and 15% of the starting field, the chip leader is removed from play and given their share. So right now there are 21 left, and two players have already received their $2,000. It's a unique twist on the popular format that helps the players reach the finish line a little faster than usual.

LAPC Event #11 Is In The Money and Final Survivor Numbers

With 18 remaining in the $350 PLO Event, players are In the Money and guaranteed a payout of at least $650. The $240 Survivor Tournament that is going on ended up with 134 players total, which means 13 of them will take home $2000, and 14th will get $800. The Omaha tournament is going to play down to the final table, and the survivor will be done once everyone has locked up their $2,000, which means tonight may be a rather early night for the LAPC.

LAPC Event 12 $240 No Limit Hold'em Survivor Updates

Currently 120 players signed up for the first Survivor Tournament of the Series. Looks like it will exceed the 123 players we had in last year's first survivor. Numbers have been up pretty consistently so far for this LAPC, and theres no reason to suspect that trend won't continue. Registration is still open for 30 more minutes, at which point we will update you on the prize pool and payouts.

LAPC Event #11 $350 Pot Limit Omaha Numbers

There were 154 players that came out this afternoon for the first Pot Limit Omaha Event of this young LAPC, creating a prize pool of $46,200. Some of our regulars, including current WPT Player of the Series Points leader Albert Shim showed up to take their shot at this popular game. There are currently 27 players remaining, and 20 of them will be in the money. Tonight they'll play down until the final table. Here's a look at the payouts that they're playing for.

Cards in the Air: $240 Survivor Event

Our afternoon tournament is one that is always popular in the LA crowd. It's a $240 Survivor Event. If you don't know how this type of event works, here's the breakdown.

The tournament will play out as normal until the top 10% is reached. When that happens, the tournament will be over. The prizepool will then be divided up evenly, regardless of chip counts. In addition, the chip leader with 25% left, 20% left, an 15% left, will be taken out of the tournament and given an equal payout. Registration will be open until 7:15 PM.

Player Profile: Andreas Dassopoulos, Winner of the $250,000 Guaranteed Event!

Last night, Andreas Dassopoulos took home the biggest first place prize of the 2017 LAPC so far. The soft spoken, older player was quite straight forward with how he felt after the play wrapped up around 10:30 PM last night.

"Yes I am very tired," he said while laughing.

For Andreas, it was the second biggest cash of a tournament career that dates back to 1997. Dassopoulos has spent a majority of his playing career in Los Angeles, and he was very happy with the result, saying "Yeah sure it's good to have this big cash."

Dassopoulos also said that this was the first event of the series for him, and that he was very happy with his play. With all levels on Day 1 being 15 minutes long, and 30 minutes on Day 2, Dassopoulos knew he would have to come out firing.

"I play once in a while but this was the first of the series for me. I played good. I had to play aggressive especially at the final table."



Dassopoulos beat out a tough final table that included accomplished young pro Andrew Miramontes, as well as Walter Fisher, who has already won three $10,000 Main Event seats in satellites so far this series. The two of them battled heads up for almost two hours, with both players trading double ups and big chip leads.

On the final hand, Fisher shoved with King-Jack, and Dassopoulos put him at risk with Ace-Ten. The eight high flop kept Dassopoulos in the lead, and he had Fisher drawing dead after an ace came on the turn.

Dassopoulos took home over $62,000, but he played it rather coy when asked if he would be coming back to play more tournmaents at this series.

"Maybe maybe," he said while once again chuckling.

Dassopoulos turned a $240 investment into over $62,000. Will you be the next player to hit it big at the LAPC? Come join us to find out!
