Antonio Robs Robl, Claims Second WPT Title
December 9, 2021
Andrew “good2cu” Robl, late last night towards the end of the World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic final table, found himself only one player away from finally earning the first major live tournament title of his young career.  Unfortunately for Robl, that last player was tourney pro Antonio Esfandiari, and he’s not the type to yield easily.  Indeed it would be Antonio instead who would claim the Five Diamond title, the second WPT title of his career, this time worth $870,124.

Being heads-up for the title with a player like Esfandiari proved not to be an ideal situation for Robl, but on the other hand few of his original 5 final table opponents would have been much better, as each has had significant success in tournament poker with bank rolls in the millions to prove it. 

To reach this stage of the tournament, Andrew and Antonio had to outlast not only PokerStars pro Vanessa Rousso but also WSOP bracelet holder Kirk Morrison, Ted Lawson and 2010 WSOP Main Event runner-up John Racener, not to mention the other 432 talented players that entered this year’s Doyle Brunson signature event but didn't quite make the final table.

For the second place finish Robl earned $549,003.

The final table finish positions for the 2010 WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic were as follows:

1st.  Antonio Esfandiari- $870,124

2nd.  Andrew Robl- $549,003

3rd.  Vanessa Rousso- $358,964

4th.  John Racener- $232,271

5th.  Kirk Morrison- $168,924

6th.  Ted Lawson- $126,693
