Akkari, ElkY, and Paul-Ambrose in the money at LAPC

Which one of these things is not like the other?

Andre Akkari.

Betrand "ElkY" Grospellier.

Steve Paul-Ambrose.

Sure, you can probably come up with a good argument for any answer here, but for the purposes of this discussion, the answer is "Andre Akkari."


Well, out of the three remaining Team PokerStars Pros left in the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic, two of them have WPT titles and one does not. That, of course, is Andre Akkari. Steve Paul-Ambrose won his WPT title at the PCA in 2006. ElkY won his WPT title last year at the Festa al Lago event.

Now, Akkari is looking to make a run for a title of his own.

Going into Day 4 of the LAPC, Akkari has an above-average stack. Sixty-three players remain in the event, all of whom are in the money. Paul-Ambrose and ElkY both are below average, but at this stage, they could turn their stacks into final table appearances by day's end.

Good luck to all three players in Day 4.
