“Even with the proliferation of poker series in recent years, there are almost none that offer the kinds of games and opportunities that players get at the LAPC,” said Tournament Coordinator Justin Hammer. “The atmosphere during LAPC is amazing. There is poker everywhere. There are new tournaments and new structures. Longer levels and more chips. Huge guarantees and even freerolls! Whatever game you’re into, there are multiple opportunities to play.”

This year, the Commerce will award two $10,000 seats into the WPT main event in special freerolls for the players. There is absolutely no obligation to the players, anyone 21 years or older can simply show up on Feb. 3 or 12 to try and win their seat. There will also be a Player of the Series freeroll that will award three additional seats.

Player room rates are $134 plus taxes, and can be booked here.
