LAPC Day 3, Bye Bye Bubble
February 24, 2022

Day 3 of the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic Main Event proved itself to be quite productive. Not only did the day cause the field to shrink from 167 to 63, but it also dispensed with the bubble period, which means everyone returning for Day 4 is now assured to make at least $23,052.

Many PokerRoad favorites and well known pros ended their runs during the difficult Day 3 including Daniel Negreanu, Anna Wroblewski, Jimmy Fricke, Jeff Madsen, Antonio Esfandiari, Todd Brunson, Liz Lieu, Hevad Khan, John Phan, Eric Mizrachi, David Oppenheim and last year's LAPC Champion and PokerRoad staple, Phil Ivey.

Players still in the hunt include David Pham, Nick Schulman, Hoyt Corkins, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Paul Darden Jr., Haralabos Voulgaris, Greg Mueller and PokerRoad blogger Erica Schoenberg.

The chip leader after three days of play is Kofi Farkye, who is currently sitting on 837,000 in tournament chips and possibly on his way to the LAPC first prize of $1,686,760. On the whole other end of the spectrum is 63rd place David Daneshgar, who has approximately one big blind left (4,000) and some serious work to do to make the WPT final table.

Daneshgar may not last long, so to learn his fate be sure to open a World Poker Tour window on your browser by noon today for chip counts, updates and videos starring PokerRoad's Amanda Leatherman.
