The World Poker Tour Los Angeles Poker Classic is winding down and the big final is set to take place today at 4:00pm PST. The final 6 players will be battling it out to see who takes home the over $1 million first place prize.
Current chipleader is rising star Michael Rocco who is in line, no matter what happens, for his biggest payday of his career as a min cash is worth $200k at the Final Table. While Rocco may hold the lead, the odds-on favorite has to be Chris Moorman. Sitting second in chips, Moorman is one of the most decorated online players of all time and, with his score today, will eclipse the 3 million dollar mark (4 million is he wins).
The rest of the field is still within striking distance as well and that includes French actor/musician turned poker pro Patrick Bruel who comes to the Final Table 3rd in chips. Josh Neufeld, Glenn Lafaye and Adam Friedman all join Bruel in looking up at the chip average, but one double up puts any one of these players in contention.
Patrick Bruel never surrenders!
The LAPC Final Table is televised so that means no live stream. Still, for those interested in watching the action as it happens the World Poker Tour will have hand for hand updates, photos and real-time chip counts available on their Live Updates webpage.
