Mark Newhouse Charges to Top of WPT LAPC Leaderboard

Lauren Kling is among, get this, SIX women remaining in the WPT LAPC Main Event.

We’re not sure if Mark Newhouse so much charged to the top of the WPT LA Poker Classic Main Event leaderboard as he did climb or ascend to it, but charged was a strong adjective for us on a Monday morning, so we went with it.

Newhouse ended Day 3 as chipleader, stacked at 498,000. He’s followed by Chris Moore, a ginger, with 489,000. In third overall is Japanese motorcycle Masaaki Kagawa with 432,000.

In all, 72 players remain (and they’re all in the money). Day 2 chipleader Daniel Negreanu is still alive, although he stacked ’em offTM. His chip count dipped to 222,500, which is still above average.

Other notables remaining include but are certainly not limited to Annie Duke, a woman (321,000), Johnny Chan, wait, Johnny Johnny Chan? Yep Johnny Chan (218,000), Prahlad Friedman (208,000), Hoyt Corkins (206,500), Erica Schoenberg, a woman (189,000), Vivek Rajkumar (157,500), Vanessa Rousso, a woman (46,000), Lauren Kling, a woman (44,000), and Jon Turner, a ginger (31,500).

More from a few months ago when we said Kling had potential here.

    Johnny Chan is going to win this. Newhouse is going to try to bluff on a big pot Mikey McDermott style and Chan is going to have none of it.

    Mark won a big online event this year and if you speak to other players EVERYONE in the Poker community is BROKE.

    Mark has hit some big hands the past few days and in Poker sometimes you have to have the “FEELING” and right now he does calling J7 after a nice size raise by another player and catching a 7 on flop and J on turn to crack KK is either a great feeling or a lucky one. We will see by the end of today though. I wish Mark all the best today!

    Oh I know they are broke. Playing for high stakes is a losing proposition except for a select few.

    I, on the other hand, have played for years on the same massive bad beat jackpot I won in 06, and still have more than I won that night.
