Antonio Esfandiari Still Leading WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic

John Racener's lifetime goal of winning enough money at poker to purchase the Big League Chew company is almost complete.

Only 15 remain at the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, and Antonio Esfandiari still leads the way.

The Magician is stacked at 2,680,000. Amazingly, if he makes it, this would be Antonio’s first WPT final table since 2004.

Esfandiari is trailed by John Racener with 1,900,000. Racener was among the short-stacks when the day started, but chewed his way up to second in chips.

While Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, and Doug Lee all busted, there’s still potential for a great TV final table. Also remaining include Andrew Robl (1,750,000), Kirk Morrison (1,545,000), Sorel Mizzi (1,380,000), and Vanessa Rousso, a woman (888,000).

If recent history tells us anything though, the final table will end up being Kia Mohajeri, Luis Velador, Chris DeMaci, Ted Lawson, Daniel Fuhs, and Charles Caris.
