The Developments at the L.A. Poker Classic

The cream of the poker circuit really rose to the challenge on February 15th, 2010 as several well-known poker players took down poker events at the L.A. Poker Classic. Well-known poker pros Ray Henson and Thor Hansen made the final table of the $1,065 Six-Handed Limit Hold'em event.

But it was 2009 PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) Grand Final runner-up Matt Woodward who won the title and the $30,000 1st place cash prize. Woodward is starting to emerge as a Limit specialist following a final table participation at the 2009 World Series of Poker's mixed event and a 16th place finish in the $10K Limit Holdem World Championship the summer before.

The very next poker tournament on the LAPC schedule, a $545 Limit Holdem event, was won by "Miami" John Cernuto. Cernuto, who is actually from Las Vegas, Nevada, booked the $11,590 win after outwitting a final table that included 2007 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Player of the Year Tom Schneider. But the biggest prize at the LAPC went to none other than Carlos Mortensen.

The World Series of Poker Main Event and world poker tour (WPT) winner added the L.A. Poker Classic's $1,065 No-Limit Holdem with rebuys title to his poker resume, taking home a big $273,500 1st place cash prize in the process.

Winning the title was no easy task for Mortensen, as poker pros Ralph Perry and Joe Serock both made the final table of the 317 person tournament that saw 381 rebuys and 244 add-ons.

Finally, 2008 November Nine member and WPT (World Poker Tour) Five Diamond Champion David "Chino" Rheem found himself back in the winner's circle in the LAPC, winning the LAPC's $1,065 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw event.
