Carlos Mortenson Is Intricately and Meticulously Stacking Piles of Money

After a grueling heads-up match that saw the chip lead go back and forth multiple times, Carlos Mortenson defeated Kirk Morrison to win the WPT World Championship.

Mortenson, the 2001 WSOP Main Event champ, becomes the first person (i.e. "man") to win both the the World Series of Poker's championship event and the World Poker Tour's championship event.

Kirk Morrison finished second. This guy named Paul Lee was third, followed by that Frenchie who invented Cirque, Tim Phan, and Mike Wattel.

For the win, Mortenson banks a WPT record $3,970,415, of which he will meticulously stack into some cool looking tower in his house. Maybe he'll make a castle out of it. Or maybe El Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Most importantly, the money was of course presented by the Xyience Xenergy girls. One of them is Monica. She is below.

For the record, the "Xyience girls" at Bellagio the past two days were just hot Bellagio cocktail waitresses wearing black dresses with the "Xenergy" logo on them.

So Monica, seen in the video, wasn't there. But the other girls were hot enough that she wasn't missed. (Closeup photos of the Bellagio girls are available in the photo gallery of the WPT update team -- WorldPokerTour.com.)
