The World Poker Tour televised table of six is set at the WPT LA Poker Classic at Commerce Casino. The playdown day was slow as expected thanks to the increase in level length to two hours today. We lost one player an hour on average as the final 12 sliced in half before the end of play today.

The chip leader at the end of play is Igor Yaroshevskyy with 5,315,000. Joining him at the final table is a talented field, including Chris Klodnicki, Peter Neff, Peter Tran, Mike Leah, and Anthony Zinno, who is the Season XIII WPT Player of the Year race points leader. Zinno also won the last stop on tour, the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic. Zinno is the second player this season to make back-to-back WPT final tables. Zinno's main adversary in the WPT POY race, Darren Elias, accomplished the feat when he won the WPT Borgata Poker Open and WPT Caribbean Main Events.

Here is a look at the seating chart with chip counts for tomorrow.

Seat 1.  Anthony Zinno  -  1,480,000  (37 bb)
Seat 2.  Igor Yaroshevskyy  -  5,315,000  (132 bb)
Seat 3.  Chris Klodnicki  -  920,000  (23 bb)
Seat 4.  Peter Tran  -  1,585,000  (39 bb)
Seat 5.  Peter Neff  -  2,120,000  (53 bb)
Seat 6.  Mike Leah  -  4,715,000  (117 bb)

Here is a look at the prize money still up for grabs at the final table.

1st:  $1,015,860
2nd:  $701,350
3rd:  $451,090
4th:  $333,680
5th:  $250,260
6th:  $200,830

We lost some talented players during the playdown process on Wednesday, including Ken Aldridge and Ray Henson. Here is a look at the results from Day 5.

7th:  Vladimir Dobrovolskyy  -  $167,360
8th:  Edward Ochana  -  $133,370
9th:  Tim Cramer  -  $100,410
10th:  Ray Henson  -  $73,640

The 2nd Annual WPT California Swing is Underway!

Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

WPT California Swing Logo -White
Since 2004, the World Poker Tour has had a late winter swing through the state of California, with the L.A. Poker Classic in Los Angeles followed closely by the Bay 101 Shooting Star in San Jose.

Last season, with the addition of WPT Rolling Thunder, this segment of the tour was formally named the WPT California Swing — three back-to-back-to-back tournaments with their own leaderboard and a special prize package awarded to the player who finishes with the most points.

Here are the dates for the three tournaments on the WPT California Swing:

February 28 - March 5 (UNDERWAY)
WPT L.A. Poker Classic
Commerce Casino in Commerce, CA

March 9-13
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.
