Heading into Day 3 of the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, the prize pool was a blurry object in the distance. Heading into Day 4, after a few fast and furious late-night levels, that record-setting prize pool is staring the remaining 90 players in the face.
The WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic is one table from the money, with Minnesota’s Blake Bohn leading the way. Bohn bagged 871,000 to finish with the Day 3 lead and there are plenty of other big names and players with solid WPT resumes near the top of the leader board.
Champions Club member Daniel Strelitz sits behind Bohn with 791,000, while early chip leader Brandon Meyers, who finished with the biggest stack after Day 1 and Day 2, has kept himself near the top with 638,000.
In total, there are seven former WPT champions advancing to Day 4. Chino Rheem, who is a three-time WPT winner, bagged 592,000, while Matt Giannetti finished just under 550,000. Jared Jaffee and Tony Gregg each finished over 400,000, while Darren Elias and Mike Del Vecchio advanced with just under 250,000.
With the field one table from the money, the Action Clock will be in play when Day 4 begins at 12 PM PT. That means that players have 30 seconds to act on each decision, plus additional 30-second time extensions.
