The 2011 WPT LA Poker Classic is down to just two tables stacked sickly with a slew of notable online players who give our quotation mark key a workout and a couple of the game’s best live tournament pros.
Leading the way into Day 5 is 12-year old poker wunderkind and 1-time WPT title winner Vivek “Psyduck” Rajkuma, who starts the day stacked at 3,231,000 in chips. He’s followed by online pros Gregory “mynameizgreg” Brooks (2.33 mil), Jason “TheMasterJ33″ Dewitt and Matt “berkey11″ Berkey (1.6 mil)
Among the remaining 18 are big name, big-time live tournament pros Carlos Mortensen (1.47 mil), who’s gunning for his 4th WPT title, Allen Cunningham (1.08 mil), who’s still looking for his first WPT title, and Kathy Liebert, a woman, (304k), who has her work cut out for her if she’s going to be the first ever female WPT winner.
Other notables still in include James “croll103″ Carroll (1.27 mil), Steve “gboro780″ Gross (964k), David “Bakes” Baker (736k), Shannon Shorr (690k), Darryll “Dfish” Fish (584k) and 2010 November NinerTM Jason “PBJaxx” Senti (533k).
In other news at the LAPC, Erik Seidel continues to fuck 2011’s mouth by picking up another high roller win, this time taking down LAPC Event #54 ($25,100 High Roller) after a 3-way deal that included Betrand “Elky” Grospellier. Seidel’s win here comes on the heels of his $2.5 mil AUD high roller victory at the Aussie Millions as well as fourth place finish in the PCA High Rollers ($295,960) and third in the Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge ($523,881).
