The action at the World Poker Tour LA Poker Classic has now reached the business end of proceedings as Day 5 shortened the field from the final two tables of 18 players to that of the official final table of six.
Michael Rocco emerged as the chip leader at the end of the day after his stack of 5,615,000 was some way clear of the 3,190,000 that Chris Moorman was holding.
The two biggest names on the table have to be that of Chris Moorman and Adam Friedman, with the former sitting in 2nd place and the latter actually being the short stack on the table. As you will all already know just about anything can happen on a final table, so both players will very much believe that they have a good chance at glory.

There were 12 eliminations on Day 5 with the two biggest being arguably Joe Serock and Dan O’Brien. Serock finished in 10th place whilst O’Brien fell just one place shy of the final table after becoming the bubble boy.
Busted 7th. AA<KQdd all in on T98Kdd for 4.3M. Legitimately might throw up. Very fortunate day overall tho. Gonna be a long drive home.
