Ryan Tosoc Ships Record-Breaking WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic Main Event

The 2017 World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic Main Event is done and dusted with Ryan Tosoc taking down the title and nearly $2 million in prize money. The marquee event was held at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada and drew poker’s elite and amateurs to create a strong field of 812 players who came to battle it out for their chance to enter the WPT Champion’s Club.wpt5diamondTosoc finished as runner-up to James Romero last year in this very same tournament for over $1,1 million pay-day and now this year Tosoc went on to make the final table and finally captured the title. After this win, the Chicago native has around $3,5 million in the live tournament earnings.

Tosoc secured this coveted Main Event title after Alex Foxen lost last chips with Ah-10c against Qc- 10c of Tosoc on the board 9h-3d-Kd-Jh-Jc, which gave Tosoc a straight to win the title.

Some other notable poker players who cashed in this Main Event included the likes of Mike Del Vecchio (3rd, $752,196), Lauren Roberts (8th, $153,590) and Dan Colman (14th, $61,436).
