Cornel Cimpan Wins 2009 WPT LAPC

584690 This post is for Cornel Andrew Cimpan's two kids and any other family he may have because we're pretty sure those are the only people who care that he won the 2009 WPT LA Poker Classic early this morning. The Romanian immigrant (we're guessing here) takes back to Somewhere, Texas a pretty payday of $1,686,760. Cimpan (seen at right, pic from this page) also wins a $25k entry into the WPT World Championship this April.

In the players you may care about department, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson came in the short stack and was the first to go to finish 6th. Chris Karagulleyan will keep his charter member status in the Temp Hutter Club as he blew his chip lead to finish 4th. And in third was Mike "SowersUNCC" Sowers.
