The tournament with the world's longest title, the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic, is back, with 322 players taking to the tables on yesterday's opening day at the Bellagio.
After five levels of action Allen Pock was the man out in front, turning his starting stack of 30,000 chips into 155,925 by the close of play. Joining him in the upper reaches of the leader board were plenty of notables including Jeff Madsen (125,300), Brock Parker (96,000), Jordan Christos (96,000) and this month's Bluff Europe cover star Daniel Negrean (89,000). (Check out the full Negreanu interview here). A $10,500 buy-in and the prospect of a huge score for the winner attracted a plethora of big names with Andy Frankenberger, Tony Dunst, Sorel Mizzi, Jean -Robert Bellande, Phil Laak, Antonio Esfandiari , Leo Wolpert, James Dempsey, Jeff Gross, Eli Elezra, Mohsin Charania and Chino Rheem all taking to the tables. Precise details of the prize pool are yet to be confirmed as players have until the end of level 8 to make their entrance. Re-entry is also allowed so expect plenty of early bustouts to fire a second bullet. The chip leaders are as follows:1. Allen Pock 155,925 (389 bb)2. Danny Hannawa 130,075 (325 bb)3. Jeff Madsen 125,300 (313 bb)4. Don Nguyen 124,900 (312 bb)5. Ralph Thomas 115,600 (289 bb)6. Rick Lowe 112,525 (281 bb)
