Sean Perry Leads WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic $10,400 Main Event Final Table

Sean Perry, a 21-year player son of poker pro Ralph Perry, is leading the final table of this year’s WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic Main Event, it became clear last night. The six remaining survivors will return at the Bellagio today at 4 pm local time to play down to a winner.

Perry turned 21 on the very day the $10,400 Main Event kicked off. Speaking about his performance so far, the player said that he believes this is his tournament and that he is quite confident in his game and the chips he has managed to accumulate.

The player will enter Day 6 of the event with a total of 7.65 million, good for 191 big blinds. What is more, he is almost 1.5 million ahead of the player who will begin final table action second in chips.

And that player is actually the runner-up of last year’s edition of the tournament – Ryan Tosoc. The player bagged and tagged 5.105 million to give him enough confidence for today’s finale. It is also interesting to note that he is currently looking to improve from last year, when he finished second behind only the champion James Romero. Tosoc collected $1.1 million for his deep run in the 2016 Five Diamond World Poker Classic.

Speaking to WPT staff, Tosoc said last night that he feels very confident when playing at the Bellegio, the host venue of the ongoing Main Event. He went on to explain that even if cards are not always going his way, he still feels very comfortable at the poker tables of the popular Las Vegas casino.

Who Else Made It to the Finale?

Day 5 of the tournament started with 18 survivors who were led by Ajay Chabra. The player survived through the day to collect the fourth largest stack at its end. He will enter today’s finale with a total of 3.065 million.

Former WPT champion, the only one in the final pack of six, Mike Del Vecchio ranks third in the chip counts chart with a total of 4.97 million. The player scooped his first WPT title this spring by winning the WPT Rolling Thunder Main Event.

Richard Kirsch and Alex Foxen are the other two players to be rounding out the final table of the Main Event. The players will begin Day 6 with 2.62 million and 955,000 in chips, respectively.

Each of the six finalists is guaranteed a minimum payout of $271,736. The top two finishers will collect seven-figure payouts. The runner-up will take home $1,134,202 and the winner will receive $1,958,065 for becoming the last man standing from a record-breaking field of 812 entries. The champion will also lock a seat into the season-ending Tournament of Champions to contend against the other Main Event winners throughout the ongoing sixteenth season of the World Poker Tour.
