December 21, 2021

The World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic, wrapped up at the Bellagio over the weekend with a well known and respected tournament professional earning the victory.

Daniel Alaei, a multiple World Series of Poker bracelet winner with over $2 million in career tournament earnings, won his first WPT title by outlasting a total field of 329 players- most of whom were fellow professionals- and by defeating a final table of six that held four players that had made it to a WPT final table before, and two, that had actually won one.

For the victory in this $15,000 buy-in event, Alaei claimed a top prize worth $1,428,430, a Rolex watch, a WPT gold bracelet and a $25,500 entry into the 2010 WPT World Championship- also to be held at the Bellagio early next year.

The final table finish positions for the Bellagio's WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic, were as follows:

1st.  Daniel Alaei- $1,428,430

2nd.  Josh Arieh- $952,290

3rd.  Faraz Jaka- $571,374

4th.  Shawn Buchanan- $333,302

5th.  Scotty Nguyen- $249,976
