It came to be the Hungarian Andras Koroknai who took home the WPT LA Poker classic. Andras Koroknai dominated the final table, and when it was time for heads-up, he had a lead with 13,450,000 against his final opponent Raymond Dolan's 1,450,000 stack. With blinds of 75,000 - 150,000 (25,000 ante) it was just a matter of time before Raymond was forced to move all in and try to double up before his stack would be gone. And as expected, it all came to an end straight away

Andras Koroknai moved all in from the button, and Raymond Dolan called with QClub 4Heart. Koroknai flipped over QHeart 8Heart.

FLOP: 10Heart 9Heart 4 Diamond

Dolan was now in the lead with a pair of 4's. However, Koroknai still had many outs (flush draw, inside straight draw and all 8's).

TURN 7Spade

The turn card gave Koroknai even more outs with an open-ended straight draw.

River K Heart

Koroknai gets a flush on the river and its all over! His fiends begin chanting in Hungarian and then ran down to the WPT champ, lifted him up, starting throwing him high up in the air! It was almost like a rock concert on the WPT stage!

Congratulations to Andras Koroknai!

to win 1.8 millions with Q8 is pretty nice, nice prize money for such a tourney. Hopefully we will see more from this player.
 Fakiry06/03/2010 22:00:06 GMT
Great first prize but not very well played from his oponent at last hand , hey? Perhaps he would starting to be short stack, and, in that case, a Q justifies his move, but any other case, entering all in pre-flop with just a Q, its not very pleasant. I believe that (if the secon prize wasn't also $1M) he still beats wih his head on the walls thinking on what he have done!
