Joe Tehan, a 30 year old poker pro from Las Vegas, won the L.A. NAPT main event claiming the title and the $725,000 first place prize.  He outlasted 700 other players from more than 20 countries to win the lion's share of teh $3.2 million prize pool.

It was his first big score since a win in the 2006 WPT Mandalay Bay Poker Championship.

Joe commented "This was a great experience. The turnouts at NAPT events have been getting bigger and bigger. I mean, this is a $5k tournament with over 700 players. I don’t play much outside of Vegas or L.A., so to get a turnout like this in L.A. was good. I was excited to come down and play and I’m glad I did.”

Final table results:

1 Joe Tehan $725,000

2 Chris DeMaci $440,000

3 Al Grimes $250,000

4 Anh Van Nguyen $195,000

5 Ray Henson $145,000

6 Michael Binger $114,000

7 Jason Mercier $84,857

8 Jake Toole $60,000
