After five days of grueling poker action, the World Poker Tour(WPT) Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic has boiled down to a six handed final table led by Dan Smith. Being played out at the Bellagio, Las Vegas, Level 26 saw Curt Kohlberg as the final table bubble. Play will now resume in about 12 hours with Smith and Gary Benson in command at the table.
A total of 449 entrants were there for the event creating a prize pool of $4,355,300 with the winner getting the lions share of $1,161,135.
