The LHCb experiment is a general purpose forward spectrometer operating at the Large Hadron Collider, optimized for the study of B and D hadrons. LHCb collected 1.0 fb-1 of integrated luminosity during 2011 data taking, collecting unprecedented large samples of B hadron decays to final states involving charmed hadrons. These decays offer many complementary measurements of CP violation, in particular measurements which are sensitive to the angle γ of the CKM unitarity triangle. We present here world best measurements of these decays.
