Can he do it again? Darren Elias leads the way for a potential record-extending fifth World Poker Tour title as he holds the chip lead with six players remaining in the L.A. Poker Classic. Elias has to fend off the likes of John Smith, Matas Cimbolas and David ‘ODB’ Baker as the final table is set to get underway on March 11th on PokerGO.

PokerGO has been your live stream home for the last two seasons of World Poker Tour action and more final table coverage is coming next month. Starting March 11, the L.A. Poker Classic, Gardens Poker Championship, and Borgata Winter Poker Open will crown champions live from Luxor’s Hyper X Esports Arena.

In anticipation of all three final tables, which will stream live on PokerGO from March 11-13, Poker Central gets you caught up with the narratives of these events all week in the leadup to the big action in Las Vegas!

On the final day of action at The Commerce Casino, it was Baker who started out with the chip lead and while he couldn’t maintain the top spot, he did manage to make the final table. On the final day, Andy Frankenberger (12th – $78,040) was the first to go after which fellow WPT Champions Club members Tony Tran (11th – $78,040), and James Carroll (7th – $155,900) also fell short of making it.

Here are the standings and seat order of the final table.
