The later stages of the LAPC always come with the increased buy ins, bigger prize pools, and sometimes a much more jovial atmosphere. The $1,100 buy in version of Pot Limit Omaha was just such an occasion, as players seemed to really be enjoying themselves. Bottles of Opus One were flowing, sushi was being ordered, and laughter could be heard throughout the ballroom. When registration came to a close, there were 111 entries creating a 1st place prize of just over $30,000. The final 14 players will return at 3pm to play until there is one remaining.
