The tv table at the WPT LA Poker Classic was on schedule after a day off; it ended in Hungarian victory celebrations after Andras Koroknai took down the title and a mind-blowing $1.79 million.
Koroknai got to the heads up stage in a crushing 9:1 lead over Raymond Dolan, and with those numbers it's not surprising that it was all over in one hand. Koroknai pushed all-in on the button, Dolan tried his luck with Q4 but found out he was dominated against Q8s.
Koroknai had only one $11k cash to his name before this, so he and his posse were in understandably high spirits after the game (see video below). Dolan also had just $13k in tournament cashes before the LAPC; he had been bought into the tournament by his pro player brother Tim Phan.
1st: Andras Koroknai - $1,788,040
2nd: Raymond Dolan - $1,002,710
3rd: Tri Huynh - $665,140
4th: Gevork Kasabyan - $450,580
5th: Jean-Claude Moussa - $321,840
6th: Michael Kamran - $246,740
