Monday, 27 February 2012

The World Poker Tour LA Poker Classic has reached the money bubble of 54 players with each remaining contender guaranteed at least a $21,080 return on their $10,000 buy-in. Jason Somerville leads the field.

Phil Ivey was the stone cold bubble boy at the end of Day 3, running his sixes into kings to bust out in 55th place and lock up a payday for the rest of the field. Dave Baker was the lucky recipient of Ivey’s last chips.

Other big names above the average stack of 305,000 include Joe Tehan in third place as well as Noah Schwartz and Tom Marchese in the top 10 chip counts. Those making it to Day 4 with a below-average stack include Matt Marafioti, Joe Hachem, Christian Harder and Dan Kelly.

All players who make the final table are guaranteed at least $202,910 with the winner set to walk away with $1,370,240.
