A big congratulations to Joe Cada, the winner of Event #32: $10,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship. The 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champion bested a field of 264 runners to win his second bracelet and $670,941 in prize money! Many people have doubted that Cada was a serious player, but this win has most probably silenced some of the critics!
Day 4 of the World Poker Tour LA Poker Classic saw several big names hit the rail, including all 7 Champions Club members: Scott Clements (30th place), Joe Hachem (33rd place), Scott Seiver (52nd place), Phil Laak (54th place), Carlos Mortensen (55th place), John Hennigan (56 place) and recent bestbet Jacksonville Fall Poker Scramble winner Noah Schwartz (19th place).
Today it's time for the fourth day of the 2013 WPT LA Poker Classic Main Event and 63 of 517 players will return to battle - with Jeremy Ausmus out in front with 1,014,000 chips! Ausmus is best known for his 5th place finish in the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event for an increadible $2,155,313.
Now he has the chance to boost his bankroll with another $1,004,090. However, there is still a long way to go and there are many great players left in the tournament that he will have to overcome - just to mention a few: Noah Schwartz, Elliot Smith, Joe Hachem, Dan Shak, Ana Marquez and Jesse Sylvia.
The 2012 WSOP Main Event attracted 6,598 players and became the fifth-largest Main Event in history. Nearly 2 weeks and more than half a million hands after that the $10,000 buy-in event kicked off, only 9 players remain with the chance of winning the gold coveted bracelet that comes along with the $8.5 million first prize! Yesterday we presented 4 of the 9 finalists. Here is some brief information on the other October Niners (ranked according to stack size).
Day 4 of The Big Event Main event ended up being the shortest day so far. 22 players became 8 in just about 5 hours of play and the final table is now set! Victor Ramadin, who has been the chip leader for the past 2 days, is no longer in the lead. The new chip leader is Jeremy Ausmus (picture) and he will bring just about 4 million chips to the final table.
