Chris Moorman was able to shake the monkey off his back on Friday, after he took down the $10,000 buy-in WPT L.A. Poker Classic Main Event for over one million dollars.

Moorman, who has been crushing the online tournaments for years, can now add a major live tournament title to his list of poker accomplishments.

The heads-up play between Moorman and Glenn Lafaye started after a big action hand. That hand saw a three-way all-in preflop situation with three players left in the tournament.

Players revealed the following cards:

Glenn Lafaye:  QdiamondJdiamond
Chris Moorman:  10club10spade
Michael Rocco:  Aclub8diamond

The board came down eventually KheartQspadeJheart3spadeAspade, which meant that Moorman rivered an ace-high straight to win the pot, doubling thourgh Lafaye and eliminating Michael Rocco in third place.

After that hand, Lafaye started the heads-up in a slight chip lead, but Moorman was able to take down the title eventually in a hand, where he was dealt pocket aces.

This was Moorman's first major live tournament title. He has now around $4 million in career live earnings and nearly $11 million in online earnings.

Final Table Results:

1: Chris Moorman - $1,015,460
2: Glenn Lafaye - $662,840
3: Michael Rocco - $423,440
4: Patrick Bruel - $332,190
