Alex Yen leads the final six players in the World Poker Tour Lucky Hearts Poker Open. The professional poker player has been playing poker for 15 years, but this is by far his biggest win. The yen pocketed 27,575,000 for 138 BBs and the Chicago native leads the pack by a wide margin.

Josh Kay scored two eliminations on Day 4 and sits in second place on the leaderboard, but is almost 10 million in chips behind Yen. Anton Wigg is third in chips after knocking out two of his players and is the only other player above 10 million chips and sits at 16,975,000. Daniel Lazrus came in fourth in chips on the day, and that’s there he heads to the bottom six with 7,350,000 chips.
