DoylesRoom.com Pros Look to Repeat WPT Successes at LA Poker Classic

Go Doyles Go!

Several DoylesRoom.com pros are gearing up for their California close up at the WPT LA Poker Classic today. Brunson 10 members Zach Clark, Amit Makhija, Alex Kamberis, David Sands, Chris Moorman and Dan Kelly, along with longtime DoylesRoom.com pros Todd Bunson and Hoyt Corkins, are looking to repeat the successes of past years. Together, the DoylesRoom.com pros have won over $4.7 million playing in WPT alone.

Leading the charge is Hoyt Corkins who is already famous for his two WPT championship titles. In January 2010, Corkins won the WPT Southern Poker Championship for over $700k and in 2003, Corkins won over $1 million in the World Poker Finals. Overall, Corkins has won more than $3.4 million playing in WPT events.

 While undoubtedly a feared poker force, Corkins isn’t the only DoylesRoom.com contender. Longtime DoylesRoom.com poker pro Todd Brunson has won over $227,000 on the WPT circuit, Brunson 10 pro Zach Clark has earned nearly $300,000 playing WPT events, and Amit Makhija has won over $682,000.

 In fact, most of the DoylesRoom pros playing have cashed in WPT events. While Moorman has yet to cash at the WPT, his over $5 million in online poker and live event winnings will likely strike fear into most of the WPT field. Earlier this year, the UK poker player made international headlines when he captured his 11th Triple Crown. The PocketFives.com Triple Crown is awarded to an online poker player who successfully takes down three separate poker tournaments on three different online poker sites over a one-week period.

 The LA Poker Classic Main Event begins today at noon, local time. Online poker players interested in keeping track of how the DoylesRoom.com poker pros are doing at the WPT LA Poker Classic can follow along at DoylesRoom.com.
