Tosoc, Bonomo, Tran Lead Final Table Charge at WPT 5 Diamond
From the largest $10k field in World Poker Tour history down to just 19 players.
That's where they stand this morning in Las Vegas after another 7 levels of play yesterday brought the field down to just a few contenders for the $1.9m first-place prize.
While hundreds of talented players have fallen by the wayside, plenty still remain.
Leading the pack into Day 5 today is Ryan Tosoc. The Chicago native and poker pro was the only player to top the 3 million mark and he did so with plenty to spare at 3,492,000.
Pro Justin Bonomo is in Tosoc's rear view at 2,687,000, though, and with both over 100 big blinds there's still plenty of room for a change.
Seymour Still Battling
Former Oakland Raider/New England Patriot Richard Seymour has taken to poker in a big way since his retirement from the NFL and we've talked to him before about the reasons he loves the game so much.
The 3-time Super Bowl Champ has yet to have a really big live tournament score so we can only imagine how much one might really embed the game in his future.
He's got a shot at the $1.9m available up top in this one though a late double up with 33 helped him bag a stack for Day 5.
At 553,000 (23bb) he has some work to do but the sight of a televised WPT final table can bring out the best in any player.
Former November Niner JC Tran also has the final table in his sights with 1.8m in chips, as does James Romero (2.03m), Jake Schindler (1.2m) and Igor Yaroshevskyy (1.06m).
They'll play down to six today at the Bellagio starting at 12 noon and you can follow along with the WPT Live Updates at WPT.com. Here are the remaining payouts:
* First-prize amount includes a $15,000 seat into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions.
