After roughly 15 hours of play, the OE tournament finally reached the money, and the stopping point for the night. Structure changes were being made simultaneously by both Matt Savage (a tad faster) and Allen Kessler (much longer) in order to make all players happy. We’ll stand by to see who wins that one. Players agreed to return at 3:30p instead of the scheduled 2p return time, and updates will come shortly after cards get in the air. Here’s a list of the 10 remaining players and their chip counts

15-1 IORI YOGO 60,000
15-2 DON HALPERN 236,000
15-3 ANDREY ZAICHENKO 74,000
15-4 TIM FRAZIN 38,000
15-5 ARI ENGEL 222,000

22-6 HEIU "TONY" MA 227,000
22-5 JAMES PETZING 125,000
22-8 CARLOS RODRIGUEZ 79,000
22-7 FRANKIE O'DELL 222,000
22-1 OWAIS AHMED 179,000

CSPC DAY 4 UPDATES

3 Tournaments are in the books so far with this year's CSPC, including the $22k overlay special from Saturday. Results will be posted shortly, but today we have two more tournaments underway. The $350 Omaha 8 or Better Event got 88 players, and the $350 NLH Survivor will have registration open until 9:30p, and currently has 62 entries. Tomorrow we will have our HORSE Tournament, and the first flight of the $200k Guarantee NLH Double Stack. Definite possibility for some more overlay in that event, as we will need 1,000 players in order to meet the guarantee. Updates to that event will be provided here, as well as on Twitter @LAPC.
