Vahedi you may remember as the sixth place finisher in the 2003 WSOP Main Event. While it doesn’t seem like we’ve heard much from the cigar chumping Vahedi over the years since, the dude does have $2.85 mill in tourney earnings.
Still hanging around the top of the leaderboard are both Gus Hansen (2,929,000) and Tom "durrrr" Dwan (2,874,000).
Some other big name big stacks include past WPT and WSOP bracelet winner Michael Gracz (1,674,000), our new pick to win it Kenny Tran (1,442,000), and Robert Mizrachi (1,079,000).
Defending champ Carlos Mortensen was knocked out in 38th place.
And f’ us if we’re wrong, but we think with all of the elminations today, Jonathan Little wraps up WPT POY honors. Well, found the link, it’s true.
