  1. Another televised World Poker Tour final table is set. This time, it’s the Season XVIII WPT L.A. Poker Classic. The event drew 490 entries to Commerce Casino and generated a prize pool of $4.727 million. Just six players remain and they’ll be on hiatus until action resumes at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas on Thursday, April 2. Leading the way in the chase for the $1.015 million top prize is Balakrishna Patur. Patur brings 6.32 million in chips to the final table. He’ll be joined by two WPT Champions Club members in Matas Cimbolas and James Carroll, Ka Kwan Lau, Scott Hempel, and WPTDeepStacks champion Upeshka De Silva. De Silva will be the short stack with 930,000 when action resumes in April. WPT LAPC Final Table Seat 1: Scott Hempel - 1,670,000 Seat 2: James Carroll - 4,125,000 Seat 3: Matas Cimbolas - 4,310,000 Seat 4: Ka Kwan Lau - 2,250,000 Seat 5: Upeshka De Silva- 930,000 Seat 6: Balakrishna Patur - 6,320,000 [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] Each of the six is guaranteed a minimum payday of $185,330. Included in the event’s first-place prize is a $15,000 seat to the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions presented by Baccarat Crystal. How the Final Table Was Reached Day 1 saw Demo Kiriopoulos emerge as the event’s chip leader when the first day of play was in the books. Then it was Isaac Baron atop the field at the end of Day 2. Entering Day 3, 104 players remained and the top 62 were set to reach the money. With 63 players left, WPT Champions Club member Jordan Cristos was all in against fellow WPT champion Daniel Strelitz. According to the WPT Live Updates team, Cristos was all in with the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8c"] on the [poker card="8d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="6s"] flop. Strelitz had made the call with the [poker card="Td"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="Jh"] on the turn and 8h on the river allowed Cristos to double up, but that would be the last time he doubled up this tournament. Shortly thereafter, still on the money bubble with 63 players remaining, Cristos was all in on the [poker card="Js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5d"] flop with the [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jd"]. His opponent, Claude Codru, had the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Ts"]. Once again, it was Cristos needing to fade a draw. This time, the [poker card="Qs"] came right out on the turn and gave Codru an unbeatable flush. The river completed the board with the [poker card="2d"] and Cristos was sent home as the "bubble boy." Once in the money, the eliminations began to stack up, including Barry Greenstein (61st - $16,905), Jesse Sylvia (55th - $18,845), and Lee Markholt (41st - $21,290). To close out Day 3, 39 players remained with Patur on top of the pack. Day 4 saw the field whittled down to 11 players. Baron remained in contention and finished Day 4 as the chip leader, with Hempel sitting second and Patur sitting third. Donald Maloney (37th - $24,375), John Hennigan (34th - $24,375), JC Tran (29th - $28,275), and Dylan Linde (14th - $58,215) were among the casualties on Day 4. Baron couldn’t get anything going on Day 5, though, and he fell in 11th place for $71,950. Charles Kassin and Lau both scored early double ups through Baron, and then De Silva picked off a bluff from Baron. On his final hand, Baron held pocket eights against Hempel’s pocket tens but could not come from behind. Hempel also knocked out WPT Champions Club member Kevin Eyster in 10th place. Strelitz went bust in eighth, and his elimination came in a three-way clash of WPT champions involving Carroll and Cimbolas. Strelitz was all in preflop with side action between Carroll and Cimbolas. On the [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Ts"][poker card="8c"] flop, Cimbolas bet 300,000 and Carroll shoved for more than 5 million. Cimbolas called all in for 1.56 million total with the [poker card="As"][poker card="Ah"]. Carroll had the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="2c"] and then Strelitz had the [poker card="Td"][poker card="9d"]. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] and the river was the [poker card="3s"], keeping Cimbolas’ aces in front and eliminating Strelitz. After Strelitz busted, Shi Chen was sent packing in seventh place to set the official TV final table.

  2. Pat Lyons topped the 1,382-player field in Event #17 ($777 No Limit Hold'em) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online to win $173,551.56 and the first bracelet of his career. Lyons now has a WSOP bracelet and World Poker Tour title on his resume. Lyons, who won the WPT Legends of Poker in 2016, eliminated the final two players standing in between himself and victory early Saturday morning. Dave 'DunningKrugr' Alfa opened to 240,000 from middle position with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"] before Lyons re-raised to 637,500 from the hijack with [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. Alfa moved all in for 2,912,994 and Lyons called. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="th"][poker card="qh"] to give Lyons a full house against Alfa's flopped two pair to eliminate Alfa in ninth. Fresh off finishing runner-up in Event #16 just 24 hours earlier, Julian 'Julian' Parmann was back at the final table hoping to improve on that result. His tournament run ended sooner than he had hoped for. Parmann moved all in for 555,005 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"] from middle position only to have Barry '_MLB_' Wenger call from the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"]. Both players completely missed on the [poker card="7d"][poker card="5c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="jd"] runout to send Parmann out in eighth place. The next elimination played out very similar with Wenger still in control. Scott 'BudLightLime' Hempel moved all in for 884,182 from middle position with [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] before Wenger called from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"]. Wenger took a firm grasp on the pot with the [poker card="qs"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3h"] flop and Hempel was unable to get any help from the [poker card="9h"] turn or [poker card="5h"] river and was out in seventh. Ten minutes later, Wenger sent another player to th rail. From UTG, 'veepoh' moved all in for 437,104 and Wenger and Jim 'BOCARATONE' Collopy called from the small and big blind respectively. Wenger and Collopy checked through the [poker card="js"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4d"] flop and [poker card="2h"] turn before Wenger bet 730,656 after the [poker card="9d"] river. Collopy folded and Wenger showed [poker card="ts"][poker card="7c"] for a rivered straight while 'veepoh' showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="3d"] and was eliminated in sixth. Collopy's night lasted just another five minutes. From UTG, Collopy moved all in for 2,479,684 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="jh"] and Wenger called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"]. The board ran out [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2h"] to give Wenger another pot and end Collopy's run with a fifth place result. Wenger continued to maintain control over the table and sent yet another player to the rail just two minutes after busting Collopy. Action folded to Wenger in the small blind and he moved all in for 2,479,684 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"] and Event #1 winner Jonathan 'Art.Vandelay' Dokler called from the small blind for 2,572,760 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="js"]. Dokler could do nothing but watch the [poker card="ad"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="qc"] runout end his run at a second bracelet and eliminate him in fourth. Those string of eliminations gave Wenger 65% of the chips in play three-handed but the next 10 minutes were anything but kind to him. Down to just 11 big blinds, Wenger shoved from the button for 2,798,736 with [poker card="kc"]td] and Lyons called from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"]. Wenger got no help through the [poker card="9c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="4s"][[poker card="7c"][poker card="qh"] runout and was done in third place. Lyons had a better than 9-1 chip lead over 'NJ_Glive' when heads up play began. 'NJ_Glive' doubled twice in the first five hands between the two but ultimately was unable to get any closer. From the button, 'NJ_Glive' raised to 560,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] and then called when Lyons moved all in from the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"][poker card="2h"] flop gave both players a pair with 'NJ_Glive' in front with aces. The turn was the [poker card="jc"] but the [poker card="qh"] river gave Lyons trip queens and eliminated 'NJ_Glive' in second place giving Lyons the bracelet and $173,551.56. Final Table Payouts Pat 'Ichiikawawa' Lyons - $173,551.56 NJ_Glive - $107,478.14 Barry '_MLB_' Wenger - $76,327.86 Jonathan 'Art.Vandelay' Dokler - $54,948.32 Jim 'Bocaratone' Collopy - $40,147.10 veepoh - $29,602.44 Scott 'BudLightLime' Hempel - $22,250.20 Julian 'Julian' Parmann - $16,832.76 Dave 'DunningKrugr' Alfa - $12,963.16 Faces in the Crowd Daniel Negreanu finished 123rd for $1,354.36 to pick up his sixth cash of the Series.
