The UK’s Toby Lewis is on course to claim his first WPT title after a storming performance during Day 4 of the L.A. Poker Classic.
The Brit surged from the middle of the pack to finish the session with 1,816,000 chips, which was almost 300,000 more than his closest rival, Paul Klann (1,581,000).In a day which saw 63 players cut to just 18 a slew of big name players were sent to the rail, including Joe Hachem, Phil Laak, Scott Seiver and Noah Schwartz, whose 19th place exit brought proceedings to a close.Indeed, after Schwartz moved all-in with Ah Qs, Jeremy Ausmus called with pocket eights. After a ray of hope fell for Schwartz on the Js 5s 3s flop, a blank turn (4d) and river (3d) sent his chips over to Ausmus who enters today’s session with just over 1 million. Of the remaining players on display it will be Lewis and Ausmus who will garner the most respect; however, with over $1 million on the line, anything could happen during today’s session.
