On this Sunday’s WPT episode (8pm and 11pm on FSN), one of the three remaining players at WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic will emerge victorious and claim the $821,612 first-place prize. Poker pros Vanessa Selbst, James Dempsey and Soi Nguyen are all that remain of the 413 entries who started this event, and only will have their name engraved on the WPT Champions Cup and earn a place in poker history.
Here are the chip counts of those three players when we last left them:
Soi Nguyen – 8,260,000
James Dempsey – 5,435,000
Vanessa Selbst – 2,830,000
The action starts quickly in the episode and doesn’t let up as the chip lead changes hands multiple times as these three seasoned professionals battle it out for all the glory.
Along with the intense poker action, viewers will also see interviews with all three players as they bust out or win the whole event (we’re not telling who does which), as well as some famous spectators, like poker pros Chino Rheem, Chris Moorman and Sam Trickett. A new WPT Ones to Watch segment provides a look inside the life, and home, of Matt Marafioti, and the WPT Championship Cup Moment looks back on Gus Hansen’s victory at this very event 10 years ago.
So, take a look at the player profile of Vanessa Selbst above and then make sure to tune in to, or set your DVR for, FSN at 8pm and 11pm local time to catch WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic: Part 3.
