Phil Ivey Does Not Win 2012 WPT LAPC Main Event

Phil Ivey was thisclose to cashing in the 2012 WPT LAPC, but fell a spot short.

A lot of the biggest names remaining in the 2012 WPT LAPC fell late on Sunday, but the remaining field of 54 is still pretty loaded.

The star who brought the biggest buzz–Phil Ivey–was eliminated one spot shy of the money in 55th place. Other late eliminations included Phil Hellmuth, Erick Lindgren, and Jennifer Harman.

Leading the remaining field is Tuan Phan with 1,140,000. He’s followed by Jason Somerville with 860,000. In third overall is Joe Tehan, whose name still looks too much like “Tehran” for our liking, with 831,500.

Other notables remaining include but are certainly not limited to Tom Marchese (535,000), Doc Sands (463,500), David “The Dragon” Pham* (355,000), “Salty” Joe Hachem (153,000), and Sorel Mizzi (124,000).
