Day 4 is just about to get underway with 72 players remaining. Last night played later than expected so that they could all make it into the money.

PartyPoker has two players left in the field, or almost 3%. We are still above expectations! That’s the good news. The bad news is that both players are sitting below average in chips, so they have their work cut out for them.


One of our stars, and one of “the” stars, have both been eliminated.

Malte Roennig got so short he had to ship it in with anything, and he did. And doubled up! But then a few hands later, on the button, he got it all-in again with KQ, only to see his lone opponent show AK. No queen came and Malte finished a very respectable 71st place, good for just shy of $20,000.

On a different table, Daniel Negreanu pondered an all-in bet from Carlos Mortensen on the river. Daniel tried, as he usually does, to talk himself out of calling the bet. In the end he called and Carlos showed him a full house. Daniel was done much earlier then he wanted to be.

The tournament, which once had over 700 players, in a grand ballroom and overflow tent, is now down to this:

It’s the first break of the day, and with it a total of 18 players have exited the tournament. 54 players remain, and will play until 8:30pm tonight. Tournament Director Matt Savage hopes that they get down to 18 players, but isn’t confident.

In addition to Daniel Negreanu, other big names continue to fall. Eliminated so far today; Vanessa Rousso,, Hoyt Corkins and Robert Mizrachi.

Although the WPT LAPC Main Event is grinding on, there is another event that started yesterday here at the Commerce…the $25k high roller tournament. 41 of the top names in poker entered, and the tournament will restart today at with 23 players left.


Jeff Kimber, our last PartyPoker qualifier, has been eliminated in 54th place ($28,610).  Jeff took his AQ up against AK for a big pot, then got the rest in awhile later with a smaller pair than his opponent.

Jeff was the last hope of all the qualifiers to win the tournament, and with it, and additional $1 million for the group to share.


31 players remain in the hunt for the $1.7m 1st prize here at the Commerce casino.  None of them qualified through PartyPoker.  It’s dissapointing to not have any still playing after our spectacular showing at the Aussie Millions in Melbourne, Australia.  But our players gave it their all here in Los Angeles.

This is the first WPT event PartyPoker has qualified players to since the last WPT PartyPoker Million in 2006.  With the recent acquisition of WPT by PartyGaming, expect to see lots more qualifiers at all WPT events around the world.
