With 22 remaining, Carlos Mortensen heads into Day 5 of the WPT LA Poker Classic as the chipleader.
Mortensen, who already took down one of the prelim events at the LAPC and is gunning for his third WPT title, has the best ROI in WPT events among any player, so yet another deep tourney run shouldn’t be a surprise. He starts the day stacked at 1,669,000.
Mark Newhouse is second overall with 1,308,000. Other notables remaining include and are certainly limited to Japanese motorcycle Masaaki Kagawa (1,129,000), Johnny Chan (500,000), and Annie Duke, a woman (241,000).
