The 2013 World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic $10,000 main event has reached its final table. A total of 517 players turned out at Los Angeles’ Commerce Casino to play this storied and prestigious event, building the largest prize pool so far on the WPT’s 11th season: $4,963,200. After five days of intense action, only six players remain to battle it out for the title and the $1,004,090 first-place prize. You can watch all the action as it happens right here on CardPlayer.com with the WPT live stream beginning at 4:30 PM PST.
The broadcast will feature hole cards being shown on a 30-minute delay, with expert commentary from top tournament talents Tony Dunst, Jason Somerville, and Dan O’Brien. With those three players combining for more than $7.3 million in live and online tournament winnings, they are sure to share a lot insight during the final table action.
The chip leader heading into the final six is Paul Volpe with 4,195,000. The Philadelphia, PA native has long been a successful online tournament, but made a name for himself on the live circuit with a deep run in the 2012 World Series of Poker main event, finishing 20th for $294,601.
Volpe will have a number of tough opponents to face at the televised final table, including Britain’s Toby Lewis, who won the European Poker Tour Villamoura main event in 2010, and tournament circuit notables like Danny Fuhs and Jesse Yaginuma.
