COMMERCE, CA - This year's LA Poker Classic (LAPC) will be played January 22-March 2 at Commerce Casino, the world's largest poker room.
The main attraction is the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Championship, televised on the World Poker Tour (WPT). It draws 600+ players from all over the world with a $6 million prize pool.
In addition there will also be three new events offered for the first time:
** $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha **
** $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. **
(Hold'em, Omaha, Razz, Seven-card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Eight or Better or Hi-Low)
** $10,000 Heads-Up Championship **
Two players meet face-to-face with a double elimination and a loser's bracket.
"We feel that the addition of these Championship events will add to the prestige of the LA Poker Classic and attract players from around the world to the Commerce, " says new LAPC Tournament Director Matt Savage.
"The L.A. Poker Classic is proud to offer three exciting new challenges for those poker players who really want to experience a wider range of high stakes tournament play in an elegant setting, surrounded by the sea and warm sunshine that only California can offer in the winter," said John Griffo, Commerce Casino Development Manager. "With our visibility on the World Poker Tour, the LAPC is already one of the best regarded tournaments in the world and we believe that adding these three additional $10,000 Championship events really raises Commerce Casino's prestige on the world stage."
