The top 68 finishers earned a cash in the World Poker Tour LAPC at the Commerce Casino of the 521 entrants in the $10,000 buy-in field. After three days of action 45 players remain in contention for the TV taping final table on Thursday. Daniel Strelitz leads the field as the only player with a seven-figure count.

Strelitz bagged up 1.051 million while two Champions Club members are on his heels – Mike Sexton with 739,000 then Gavin Grifin with 714,000. Dietrich Fast, James Calderaro, Mohsin Charania and Nam Le are the other remaining former champs.

2016 Super High Roller Bowl standout Matt Berkey returns with just under half a million chips, the Day 1 and Day 2 chip leader Nick Maimone remains, along with Garrett Greer and Joe Serock.

Serock’s table habits were matters of interest to WPT TD Matt Savage.

The returning players are guaranteed $23,990, a trip to the final table locks up $96,640, any player on the TV final table earns $191,490 with the winner walking away with $1,001,110.

Aaron Massey, Tim Reilly and Maria Ho all cashed in the event but did not survive the day.

Day 4 kicks off with cards in the air at noon local time and the field is scheduled to play five levels of action before bagging up for the night.
