Day 5 of the World Poker Tour LA Poker Classic saw 18 players return to play. Toby Lewis (2010 EPT Vilamoura Main Event Champion) was the chip leader with 1.8 million and his closets opponents were Paul Klann (1,581,000) and Paul "Paulgees81" Volpe (1,581,000).
All three players mentioned above made it through the day and are among the 6 finalists that will battle for a $1 million first place prize tonight. Volpe (picture), a well-known American online pro, will bring the largest stack (4,195,000) and Klann is ranked second with 3,375,000. Toby Lewis (ranked 6th with 1,125,000) has about half of the average stack (2,585,000) but has his final table-experience to his advantage. If Lewis wins the tournament, he "only" needs a WSOP title this summer to complete poker's triple crown.
Final table lineup:
Seat 1. Paul Klann - 3,375,000 (67 bb)
Seat 2. Toby Lewis - 1,125,000 (22 bb)
Seat 3. David Fong - 2,295,000 (45 bb)
Seat 4. Jesse Yaginuma - 1,235,000 (24 bb)
Seat 5. Danny Fuhs - 3,280,000 (65 bb)
Seat 6. Paul Volpe - 4,195,000 (83 bb)

| It’s still too soon to start talking about the possibility of a new triple crown winner, Toby Lewis only won one of the three events yet and he is the last one on the rank of this 6 field final table. His experience can do a lot for him, and he may be the most mediatic figure of the group, but that’s only side advantage, chips are what count.|

| I read that the action on this tournament was really good compared to others so the final table should also be pretty interesting to watch |
You usually can see vids of the final table on the internet but i'm not sure if they also offer a live stream.
