The 2015 World Poker Tour LA Poker Classic ($10,000 buy-in single entry event) drew a field of 538 players when it kicked off a few days ago. Now, after four days of intensive play, there are only 12 players left in the hunt for the top prize of $1,015,860! Peter Tran (picture) will lead the remaining players to Day 5 (start this evening) with a stack of 4,120,000, which equals 25 percent of the chips in play.
Other players with decent stacks are Mike Leah (2,240,000), Peter Neff (1,682,000), Edward Ochana (1,401,000), and Igor Yaroshevskyy (1,215,000). Big names that won't return today but have cashed in the tournament include Erik Seidel (41st), Glenn Lafaye (40th), Daniel Negreanu (35th), Joe Serock (33rd), Scott Seiver (32nd), Shawn Buchanan (25th), and the last woman standing Elizabeth Montizanti (15th).
