Daniel AlaeiDespite being a top pro, Daniel Alaei comes in a distant third behind the other two poker pros at the Doyle Brunson Classic final table, Scotty Nguyen and Josh Arieh, in terms of fame in the poker world. However, the power rankings may have shifted slightly after Alaei was able to capture the coveted WPT title, besting Josh Arieh in a heads-up battle.

Alaei now has a WPT title to go along with his two World Series of Poker bracelets, and career earnings approaching $4 million. Alaei’s win puts him in rare company having won a WSOP and WPT tournament in the same calendar year –the $10k Omaha 8 WSOP tournament, and the $15k No Limit Holdem Championship at the Doyle Brunson Classic.

Most poker fans will also recognize Alaei from his appearances on the first three seasons of High Stakes Poker.

Here are the final six placings for the WPT Doyle Brunson Classic:

1. Daniel Alaei, $1,428,430
2. Josh Arieh, $952,290
3. Faraz Jaka, $571,374
4. Shawn Buchanan, $333,302
5. Scotty Nguyen, $249,976
6. Steve O’Dwyer, $202,362
