Paul Niemela Old, Leads WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic
We don't know much about Paul Niemela. He's up there in age. Enjoying the golden years. Probably can't relinquish any pocket pair or crappy suited Ace. Probably can't bluff him because he'll call with said pocket pair or crappy suited Ace on the river. But he has a string of moderate cashes over the past five years and he has a huge chip lead at Day 1B of the ridiculously long named WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic.
Niemela is stacked at 266,775. He's followed by Carlos Mortensen with 160,000.
Day 1B will carry over 225 players. In all about 375 remain.
