Following a weekend of entries and eliminations inside California's Bicycle Casino, the final number of runner in the $3,500+$200 WPT Legends of Poker Main Event reached 716.
With the prizepool set above $2,500,000 and a top prize of $613,355 gleaming in the distance, Fabrice Touil led the 259 survivors from Days 1A, 1B and 1C. Since the start of today's session, the chip lead changed a number of times as the bubble approached. Indeed, whilst the likes of David Sands, Steve Sung and Jason Koon hit the rail, Dan Heimiller soared to the top of the chip counts towards the close of the day. The American pro bagged up a stack of 1,099,000 to finish the day ahead of Richard Munro (879,000), Phil Laak (830,000) and Jordan Cristos (670,000). When the final counts were in a total of 71 players were left in contention thanks to a double elimination at the end of the day. Sky Sports NFL pundit and regular poker commentator David Tuckman was on the right end of a flip with JJ against Ashton Holmes' AK and will return with a just below average stack. At the same time Heimiller was sending Jake Shindler to the rail, his Qh7h surprisingly good on an Ac10s7s9d9h board.
