Live Tournament Updates

Chris Moorman Wins WPT LAPC ($1,015,460)

Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

WPT S12 LAPC Champion Chris Moorman_WPT LAPC_S12_Giron_8JG2505 Chris Moorman had surprisingly never won a major title before the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic final table but he was still one of the most successful poker players of all time. He held close to $3 million in career live earnings and another $11 million online (online winnings information provided by www.pocketfives.com). Tonight in Los Angeles he booked his second million-dollar live cash and cemented his status as one of the all-time legends of British poker. Moorman topped a field of 534 players and he booked his first career title. Everyone in the poker world knew it was only a matter of time before this would happen, it was only a question of when and where. It is fitting that it came at one of the top tournaments on the WPT schedule. A marquee champion at a marquee event.

Here is a look at the chip counts when cards got into the air on Thursday at the Commerce Casino.

Seat 1.  Chris Moorman  -  3,190,000  (106 bb)
Seat 2.  Patrick Bruel  -  2,280,000  (76 bb)
Seat 3.  Josh Neufeld  -  1,930,000  (64 bb)
Seat 4.  Glenn Lafaye  -  1,855,000  (61 bb)
Seat 5.  Adam Friedman  -  1,150,000  (38 bb)
Seat 6.  Michael Rocco  -  5,615,000  (187 bb)

Action began with Moorman being the most active player at the final table, while Adam Friedman didn't win a pot during the first 18 hands. That wouldn't change for him when he was all in on the 19th hand either. Glenn Lafaye raised to 105,000 from middle position and Friedman reraised all in for 555,000 on the cutoff. Lafaye tanked for a while but eventually called. Friedman was ahead with 4diamond4heart but Lafaye's AheartJspade found some help on a board dealt Aclub9heart7spade2club5spade. Friedman was out in sixth place, good for $200,440, to kick off the eliminations.

Josh Neufeld was the second to fall on Hand 38. He raised to 110,000 on the cutoff and Moorman reraised to 280,000 on the big blind. Neufeld then reraised all in for 1.63 million and Moorman called. Neufeld had his tournament hopes pinned on the Aheart10heart but he was behind the pocket tens held by Moorman. The board ran out 9club4diamond3diamond6heartQheart and that was is for Neufeld, who was eliminated in fifth place and took home $264,520.

Then the double ups began, and there were quite a few of them before a player busted out in fourth place. First, Lafaye doubled up and then Bruel took a turn surviving successfully. Lafaye then doubled up two more times and Rocco doubled up as well. That took us all the way to Hand 112.

Bruel was then all in for a second time and it would be his last. Moorman raised on the button preflop to 215,000. Bruel called on the small blind and Lafaye called on the big blind. The flop was dealt Jheart8spade2club and both Bruel and Lafaye checked. Moorman bet 265,000 and Bruel raised all in for 1,705,000. Lafaye folded and Moorman called. Bruel held Kclub8club for a pair of eights but he was behind Moorman's pair of jacks, thanks to AclubJclub in the hole. The turn and river fell 9clubQheart and Bruel was out in fourth place, good for $332,190.

A short time later the largest hand of the tournament took place and set the heads-up final lineup in the process. All three players were all-in preflop on Hand 129 and it was an exciting hand from start to finish. Lafaye raised to 325,000 on the button and Rocco reraised all in for 2,020,000 on the small blind. Moorman moved all in over the top for 2,835,000 from the big blind and Lafaye called to cover them both. All three players then tabled their hands.

Moorman: 10club10spade
Lafaye: QdiamondJdiamond
Rocco: Aclub8diamond

Board: KheartQspadeJheart3spadeAspade

Lafaye flopped two pair to take the lead but Moorman made a Broadway straight on the river to win the hand and triple up to survive. Rocco was eliminated in third place and he took home $423,440. Lafaye still held the chip lead for the start of the heads-up final with 8,275,000 but Moorman was right on his heels with 7,750,000.

Moorman took the chip lead on the first hand of the heads-up final and he never looked back after that. Lafaye was able to double up once, but his stack was already so low that he had to shove again a short time later. He picked a poor time to make that move because Moorman woke up with aces to end the tournament.

On the final hand Lafaye limped preflop and Moorman raised to 600,000. Lafaye called and the flop was dealt Jclub7club6diamond. Moorman bet 525,000 and Lafaye moved all in for 3.9 million. Moorman quickly called with AheartAdiamond and Lafaye flipped over 5spade4diamond. The turn and river fell Qheart5diamond and Moorman won the pot and the WPT title. Lafaye took home $662,840 as the runner up. Moorman pocketed the top prize worth $1,015,460, which includes a seat in the WPT World Championship at the end of Season XII. Moorman also won a special edition pair of Monster 24K Gold headphones and the iconic Commerce Remington trophy. 

Final Table Results:

1: Chris Moorman - $1,015,460
2: Glenn Lafaye - $662,840
3: Michael Rocco - $423,440
4: Patrick Bruel - $332,190
5: Josh Neufeld - $264,520
6: Adam Friedman - $200,440

Hand #164: Glenn Lafaye Eliminated in Second Place ($662,840)

Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

WPT S12 LAPC Champion Chris Moorman_WPT LAPC_S12_Giron_7JG2347 Glenn Lafaye limps for 200,000, Chris Moorman raises to 600,000, and Lafaye calls.

The flop comes Jclub7club6diamond, Moorman bets 525,000, Lafaye moves all in for 3,900,000, and Moorman snap-calls with AdiamondAheart for an overpair. Lafaye turns over 5spade4diamond for an open-ended straight draw, and he needs to improve to stay alive.

The turn is the Qheart, the river is the 5diamond, and Chris Moorman wins the pot — and the WPT title — with pocket aces.

Glenn Lafaye finishes as the runner-up, earning $662,840.

Chris Moorman wins the WPT L.A. Poker Classic, earning $1,015,460, a WPT Champions Trophy, a Commerce Remington trophy, and a pair of Gold Monster 24K Headphones. Moorman’s prize money includes a $15,400 seat into the season-ending WPT World Championship at the Borgata Casino in April.

Congratulations to Chris Moorman!
