Yesterday, the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic final table was played. Carlos Mortensen, from Spain, had the chance to win his 4th title on the WPT tour and because of that many were cheering a little bit extra for him to win the tournament. He did very well on the final table, but unfortunately he was sent packing in 3rd place, which left Gregory Brooks and Vivek Rajkumar playing heads-up. It only took 31 hands before a short stacked Rajkumar was forced to move all-in to stay in the game. Rajkumar had Q[s]10[s] and Brooks Q[d]Q[c]. Brooks queens stood up to the river and gave him the win and the first place prize of $1,654,120. Rajkumar got $908,730 for his second place.

Here's a video interview with the champion, Gregory Brooks
