We have two more events kicking off tomorrow, including a fun one starting up at 1 PM. It is a $570 Heads-up Event. This tournament will play out just like the NCAA Tournament, with a bracket of 64 players. All matches will be best 2 out of 3, and there is no re-entry. Last year, Thu Nguyen took down the event, taking home $8,000. This event is capped at 64, and there are currently 51 players, so space is running out! If you would like to ensure your seat, we'd suggest you come down tonight to register.
At 5 PM, we have another action packed event, a $150 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-or-Better event that will allow for multiple rebuys. Players start with 2,500 in chips, and registration and the re-buy period will be open until 7:15 PM. This is a two day event as well.
It should be a great day of poker action, so don't miss out!

We took a break from the O-8 final table to take some photos of the $570 Stud Event. Max Pescatori is here making his 2017 LAPC debut, and as per usual, his hair game is on point. We also spotted Craig Chait looking for his third final table of the series so far. Check out those photos, and a couple more, below.

The final three players briefly discussed the idea of a chop, but no numbers were looked at. We play on!

Vinci need a diamond or a low card to stay alive, and though he thought the [7c] on the river saved him, it was no good, as it gave Xiong a full house.
We are down to five players now. As of yet, we haven't heard any talks of a chop.

For the most part this series, we have hit at least 100 players in every Mixed Game event so far. We might fall short of that mark in today's $570 Stud Event, as 45 players have entered so far. Registration is open until 5:30 PM, so you still have a couple of hours to come down and join us for the action!
