Peter Tran Leads Final 43 Players with 1,369,000

Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

RFGs Tugba & Brittany at Monster Bar Day 3 saw the field play down into the money at the World Poker Tour LA Poker Classic $10,000 single-entry Main Event at Commerce Casino. There were 120 players that returned at the start of play today and 43 have advanced to the fourth day of play in this marquee event.

The money bubble burst when Matt Berkey was eliminated in 64th place this evening by Mike Leah. Everyone remaining at that point in play was guaranteed at least $19,050 in prize money.

The chip leader at the end of play tonight is Peter Tran with 1,369,000. Other top stacks were bagged up by Mike Leah (1,185,000), Peter Neff (1,034,000), Curt Kohlberg (990,000), Edward Ochana (831,000), and Greg Mueller (695,000). The Day 2 chip leader Brent Hart held steady throughout the day and he bagged up 596,000 at the end of play tonight.

The Season XIII WPT Player of the Year race leader Anthony Zinno is still in the hunt so he should hold onto his lead for another stop on the tour. One of the biggest names in poker Daniel Negreanu also bagged up chips at the end of play tonight. There are a handful of WPT Champions Club members still in the mix looking for yet another WPT title, including Erik Seidel, Shawn Buchanan, and Scott Seiver.

Just under half of the returning field went home empty-handed today, and the notables that missed the money included Season XII California Swing winner Michael Rocco, BLUFF.com Ones to Watch Candace Collins, and WPT Champions Club members JC Tran, Joe Hachem, Marvin Rettenmaier, Paul Klann (Last former LAPC champion standing), James Carrol, Jordan Cristos, and Jonathan Jaffe. There were also some big names who cashed today, including Natasha Barbour (63rd), Adam Friedman (61st), David Tuthill (57th), DraftKings qualifier Mark Darner (53rd), Ryan Fee (52nd), Matt Waxman (48th), Darren Elias (46th), Bryce Yokey (45th), and Jeff Yarchever (44th). 

Tune back in at Noon PT on Tuesday to follow the action from Day 4 of this event in Los Angeles. The fiield will play down to the serious money tomorrow and the WPT Live Updates team will bring you all of the action.
