The final table of six is finally set after 5 intensive days of play at Bellagio in Las Vegas. It took about 9 hours of play for the final 21 players to become a final table of 6 in the 5th day of the tournament. Dan Smith, a very experienced live tournament player with over $4.5m in winnings to date, bagged up the largest stack (3.9 million) at the end of play, and the only other player to accumulate over 3 million chips was Gary Benson (3.1 million).

Besides Dan Smith, the biggest name at today's final table is Joe Serock with 1.6 million. Serock has over $1.7 million in online earnings and close to $2.2 million in live tournament earnings. He might not have the biggest stack at the moment, but he definitely has what it takes to become a WPT champion! 

Final table line up:
Seat 1. Eddy Sabat - 1,540,000 (38 bb)
Seat 2. Barry Hutter - 1,265,000 (31 bb)
Seat 3. Dan Smith - 3,720,000 (93 bb)
Seat 4. Gary Benson - 3,110,000 (77 bb)
Seat 5. Joe Serock - 1,615,000 (40 bb)
Seat 6. Shaun Suller - 2,425,000 (60 bb)

Prize pool:
1: $1,161,135
2: $672,685
3: $436,160
4: $303,793
5: $219,165
6: $175,766

Even though the final TV table will be one of the most talented of the year, a lot of notables during the play-down stretch today as well, including Champions Club member Will Failla (18th), Steven Silverman (16th), Dan O'Brien (13th), Zach Clark (12th), Andy Philachack (11th), Jean-Robert Bellande (10th), Christian Harder (9th), and the final table bubble boy Curt Kohlberg (7th).

Hmm good final table I am sure all of the players will be relinquishing to get the big pot, so as to get a good Christmas pocket money and they can party and buys gifts for all family and friends. Either way, 6 figures is a lot and busting out at 6th place still guarantees a nice sum.

Good luck guys!

Looks like Dan Smith has an overwhelming chance of winning this thing. He has a nice chip lead and a lot of experience in playNig these events. Joe Serock must be one of his biggest dangers

Crazy, five days to finish this game. And over 9 hours for the last 21 players is a good hourly rate... Big Smile But why it called Doyle Brunson five Diamond wp classic? Is he the Sponsor?

I saw some images and it definately like a fun event but in the end big congratulations to Dan for taking the big prize Big Smile

I would also like to know why this event has the name of Doyle in it? I knew he had a part of an poker room but a live mtt with his name is a first.
