Dan Smith: King For Yet Another Day

If you are a die hard poker fan, then you’ve already heard the news. The man with one of the most generic names in poker, Dan Smith, added yet another massive accolade to his incredibly unique career—his first World Poker Tour title. The Team Ivey pro bested the incredibly pro heavy field at WPT 5 Diamond World Poker Classic for a massive $1.16 million dollar payday and a mammoth trophy to boot.

While for many that might be the crowning achievement of a young career, this is King Dan’s third 7-figure score. The accomplished 24-year old already has over $5.6 million dollars in career earnings as well as both an EPT and an Aussie Millions High Roller title.

Old dudes reading this: don’t feel bad. Dan so young he can’t even really rent-a-car for another year, So he’s got to hitch a ride when he’s travelling around the world winning all the money, so you have that on him.
