After five days of action inside the Commerce Casino a new WPT L.A. Poker Classic champion has finally been crowned.
Having started the finale second in chips, Paul Klann managed to survive the surge of pressure from those beneath him to earn himself a heads-up tussle with start of the day chips leader, Paul Volpe.The final table action began with the UK’s Toby Lewis hitting the rail in sixth place. The young Brit started the finale with the shortest stack and, despite his considerable talent and experience, he was unable to reverse his fortunes. After making a squeeze play with Ah Th, Lewis was relieved to see Danny Fuhs make a somewhat loose call with Ad 9d. Toby’s relief soon turned to despair as the 9c 6c 6s flop gave Fuhs the lead, before the 6d and 5s on the turn and river scooped him the pot. With Lewis watching from the rails with an extra $193,560 added to his bankroll, the final five engaged in a prolonged battle. Eventually David Fong hit the rail before Fuhs and Jesse Yaginuma did the same, leaving just Klann and Volpe to fight for the title. A flurry of exchanges saw the chip lead switch a number of times before Klann finally booked his first major win and the million dollar top prize. 1st: Paul Klann $1,004,090 (includes $25,500 seat into WPT Championship)2nd: Paul Volpe $651,1703rd: Jesse Yaginuma $429,8104th: Danny Fuhs $316,6505th: David Fong $236,2506th: Toby Lewis $193,560Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
