All is on the line for Team Doyle Brunson player Steve Gross who is looking to become the first member of the elite “Brunson 10” to win a World Poker Tour (WPT) title. 

The Brunson 10 was assembled last year to create a talent pool of young players representing arguably the oldest player in the world and his online poker room – DoylesRoom.com.

Gross had the least number of poker chips coming into the LA Poker Classic 2011 final but he hoped to overcome this deficit.  Carlos Mortensen led the final table of six with Vivek Rajkumar very close behind.
