Thu Nguyen and Peter Neff Headline the Elite Eight

The final match of the day has just completed here in the $1,100 Heads Up Event, as Gregory Paryani has just punched their ticket to the final eight tomorrow. The two biggest stories going into play tomorrow are Peter Neff and Thu Nguyen. Neff has already claimed two titles so far at this year's LAPC, and will be looking to add to his lead in the Player of the Series Race. He will be taking on Paryani tomorrow.

And then, there's Thu Nguyen. Last year, Nguyen took down the $570 installment of this event, defeating Kazu Oshima in the finals. Amazingly, Nguyen was defending his crown, having won the year before, defeating Michael Abitbol for the title. Since there is no $570 version of the heads-up event this year, Nguyen will be looking for the rarely ever seen three peat tomorrow. 

Here is how the final eight shape up. The red suits are on one side of the bracket, with the black suits on the other side. Action resumes tomorrow at 2 PM!
