Antonio Esfandiari Continues To Dominate WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic

December 6th, 2010 – by Glen Farmer

In the end of day 2, Antonio Esfandiari had dominated the felts. He entered day 3 with a total chip count of 485,600. At the end of day 3, he continued to hold the top position.

Esfandiari not only held the top chip count, but he was also the first to breach the 1 million chip mark. Antonio exited the poker room at the end of day 3 with 1,082,500 chips, giving him more than 300,000 chips above his closet competitor – Douglas Lee.

Some other poker pros had also survived through day three. Vanessa Rousso, Doyle Brunson, and David Sklansky are amongst the professionals.

Vanessa Rousso managed to pull down the third place position, holding 694,000 chips at the end of the day. Brunson held 446,000, while Sklansky is in one of the lowest positions, holding only 90,500 chips.

The prize pool has been established, and the final six players will each earn over $100,000 for their efforts. The first place position will take $870,124 and a $25,000 seat to the World Poker Tour Championship in 2011.

Everyone still remaining in the event will earn at least $13,725 for their efforts. The top 100 players of the 439 entrants are in the money.

Day 4 of the event will likely thin the field significantly. The event is expected to come to an end on December 8th.
