Cheers to him I wonder when I will win a televised main event and sit in front of a pile of cash, I can dream about it since I don't have the required skills to be successful in poker. And he is the only known players among those six players. New faces coming in Cheers!

Very nice victory, against so many experienced players that were sit around him. I guess we will be hearing more about him from now on. At least pros will try to pay atention to know if Chris Moorman's around when they get to final stages.

Congratulations to Chris Moorman for winning 2014 World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic. Nice job!! Think that if Chris manages to go from online to live poker keeping his edge,we can talking for a remarkable player for sure. His achievements so far are great (20 times Triple Crown winner) but I do not remember such a prestigious win in live poker event. To be honest I am not familiar with rest of players in the final table but its only me. Keep going Chris we are waiting your book to go public so we can find out how you doing this stuff.
No doubt now, this guy is simply a genius in poker whatever it is online or offline an all rounder player better than Phil Hellmuth for me and yeah if he only really wanted to win some WSOP bracelets as much as Phil he would have done it for sure if they both had the same age... big congrats Chris you've just got my respect

Nice! Not heard of him before, but $11M online!!! Wow, serious poker. Must be so nice to cap it off with a monster cash in a premier event. Probably havent seen the last of this guy. Something tells me he's not going to be bored this weekend...

Despite Michael Rocco dominating the table at the start of the session, Chris stayed strong and as the likes of Adam Friedman and Patrick Bruel hit the rail he was able to thrive. By the time just three players remained, a three-way all-in resulted in Rocco leaving the table in third and Chris just a few chips behind Glenn Lafaye. After a back-and-forth exchange heads-up, Chris eventually clinched the final pot and his first major title when his pocket aces faded Lafaye's straight draw with 5s4d.
Funny there isn't anyone from the above list of finalists who was able to duplicate his success by entering this years WPT LA Classic's Final Table. I guess they didn't need a pair of gold Monster 24k Headphones and a Hublot Oceanographic watch that bad.
