2017 WPT L.A. Poker Classic Day Three: Strong Final Level Gives Daniel Strelitz Chip Lead

111 players returned to the famed Commerce Casino for Day 3 of the 2017 World Poker Tour (WPT) L.A. Poker Classic Main Event on Monday; just 45 made it through to Tuesday as the tournament now gets down to the nitty-gritty. Daniel Strelitz is the chip leader with 1.051 million, the only player with over a million chips. Strelitz has over $ 1.6 million in lifetime live tournament earnings, but is still trying to pick up his first major tournament title. He came oh so close this past summer when he finished second in the World Series of Poker $ 5,000 No-Limit event, earning $ 338,774. Strelitz didn’t expect to amass the chip stack that he did going into the final level, as he only had 560,000. Not that that is a paltry sum, as it would still put him in the top ten, but just about doubling that in

2016 Monster WPT Tournament of Champions Day 2: Strong Final Table Features Jonathan Jaffe, Michael Mizrachi Among Leaders

The first-ever final table for the Monster World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions has been set after a day of play on Saturday and it has six men that are well-qualified to be sitting in the seats. Atop the leaderboard when action resumes this afternoon is Jonathan Jaffe, but he’ll be facing some heat from Florida’s own Michael Mizrachi. 31 men returned on Saturday from the 64 player field, looking to claim their piece of the prize pool and potentially the first title of this semi-invitational event (players are eligible by having won a previous WPT event; those that didn’t win during the Season XIV schedule had to pony up a $ 15,000 buy in to be able to play). The man who had the best fortunes through the action on Friday was defending WPT Amsterdam champion Farid Yachou, who was able to eke out the lead over Mizrachi at

2016 EPT Dublin Main Event Day 2: Ivan Banic Leads Strong Field

The 341 survivors from the two starting flights met in a unified field Tuesday at the Royal Dublin Society to continue the track toward the final table in the 2016 European Poker Tour (EPT) Dublin Main Event. Croatia’s Ivan Banic takes the lead into Day 3, topping the remaining field of 127 players with 381,200 chips. This is relatively rare territory for Banic, as he has just two cashes on his live tournament resume (results courtesy TheHendonMob.com), totaling less than $ 6,000. Those two cashes, though, were very recent, both coming in preliminary events at EPT Prague in December. Banic is no novice, however, as he plays primarily online and has over $ 900,000 in recorded tournament cashes on PocketFives.com. He currently ranks 52nd in the world in PocketFives’ rankings and is the top online tournament player in Croatia. Should Banic make the money, he will win at least one
