Daniel Alaei Leads WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic

With Day 3 in the books, some of the so-called “young guns” are dominating the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic.

Leading the way is  Daniel Alaei, who we were shocked to learn is only 26, and who ended play as chip leader, stacked at 1,664,000. He’s followed by Steven Landfish with 1,172,500. Josh Arieh is third in chips with 1,112,000. And Scotty Nguyen is fourth overall, stacked at 981,50.

Other notable stacks include but are certainly not limited to Mike Sowers (801,000), Matt Stout (705,000), Joe Cassidy (689,500), Chad Batista (620,000), Carter King (583,500), John Juanda (476,000), Antonio Esfandiari (445,500), Amit Makhija (423,000), and Hasan Habib, who is still alive (295,500).

In somewhat related news, Yevgeniy Timoshenko was eliminated, which means Eric Baldwin secures CardPlayer’s Player of the Year.

In completely unrelated news, above is ESPN’s Inside Deal, special holiday edition. While the show hasn’t officially been renewed yet, it at least hasn’t NOT been renewed yet, and really, in The EconomyTM, what more can you ask for?
