Doyle Kicks Butt in the Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic

Nothing distracts poker legend Doyle Brunson, as he is making a run for the final table in the tournament named in his honor. Heading into Day 4 of the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic, the Godfather of Poker sits in 13th place with 446,000 in chips.

54 players remain the poker tournament and Brunson isn’t the only DoylesRoom.com representative who’s proving to be a huge contender. Amit Makhija is still sitting strong with 287,000 chips. With five cashes under his belt and WPT career earnings totaling close to $640,000, Makhija has a decent shot of making the final table.

Other DoylesRoom.com pros to finish in the money include Hoyt Corkins, who finished in 96th place and Zach Clark, who finished just ahead in 87th place. They both earned $12,669 for their performances.

The WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic resumes today at the Bellagio in Las Vegas at 12pm. With 489 entrants, the first place winner stands to earn $870,124.
