You'll have to tune in tomorrow to see what players will advance to the final table from this select group.

Peter Neff vs. Peter Tran -- Again

Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Peter Tran min-raises under the gun to 40,000, and Peter Neff calls from the small blind.

The flop comes Kclub6spade2diamond, Neff checks, Tran bets 35,000, and Neff calls.

The turn is the 7diamond, Neff checks, Tran bets 125,000, and Neff calls.

The river card pairs the board with the 6heart, and Neff checks. Tran tanks for a while before he says, "Two pair." Neff doesn't move a muscle. Tran repeats, "Two pair." Neff still doesn't budge.

Tran finally checks, and Neff shows KdiamondQdiamond for two pair, kings and sixes. Tran says, "Kicker," and mucks his cards. Neff wins the pot.

Peter Neff Doesn't Back Down From Peter Tran

Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Peter Neff
Peter Neff (pictured) raises from the button to 45,000, and Peter Tran grabs a handful of big chips without looking and tosses them forward as a raise -- it's 320,000.

Neff tanks for a while before he announces that he's all in, and Tran asks for an exact count -- it's 1,347,000.

One hand after calling the clock early on Igor Yaroshevskyy, Tran tanks for about five minutes before he folds, showing one card -- the Aclub. Neff takes the pot.

Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

With the board showing Adiamond10spade9spadeAspadeQdiamond on the river and about 175,000 in the pot, Peter Tran bets 450,000 under the gun, and Igor Yaroshevskyy goes into the tank.

After less than two minutes, Tran calls for a clock. A floorperson comes over and rules that not enough time has passed, giving Yaroshevskyy more time to think. After another two minutes or so, the one-minute countdown begins.

The minute counts down to the final second before Yaroshevskyy folds, and Tran takes the pot.

WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star
Bay 101 Casino in San Jose, CA

March 14-18
WPT Rolling Thunder
Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, CA

To be eligible, players must enter all three events. Players will earn points based on how deep they finish in each events. (The points system will be the same as last year can be found in the Official Contest Rules.)

Last year's winner was Michael Rocco, who finished third at the WPT L.A. Poker Classic and 21st at WPT Rolling Thunder.

The winner of the 2015 WPT California Swing will receive the following prize package:

1.  During the 2016 L.A. Poker Classic, the winner will receive six nights of accommodations at the Crowne Plaza, airport transfer, and a complimentary massage at the Meridian Spa.

The 5heart on the turn improves Tran to trip fives, and then he makes a full house on the river when it brings the 4club, sending Sands home in 14th place.
