Team PokerStars Pros cash in, miss final table
When battling against more than 600 of the world's top poker players, even making it into the money of the L.A. Poker Classic is an accomplishment, It's safe to say, however, that three members of Team PokerStars Pro are a little more than disappointed this morning.
Andre Akkari, ElkY, and Steve Paul-Ambrose all made it into the money of the LAPC and were looking to make the final table. Alas, when play ended last night, the Team PokerStars Pro crew had nothing to do but count their winnings.
Paul-Ambrose finished in 47th place and picked up $27,395. ElkY managed to make it to 32nd place for a $38,085 finish.
Akkari had entered the day with an above-average stack. Of the three remaining Team PokerStars Pros in the field, Akkari was the only one who had not yet won a WPT event. He managed to get closer than the rest of the team at the LAPC, but ended up going out in 29th place for $38,085.
Congratulations to all three on their finishes.
