Now that Epic Poker doesn’t own it (or exist), we can saw that Dan Smith has been tearing up the GPI this year.
Smith looks about as unassuming as his name. But he has earned $2,174,342 on the tournament circuit in 2012 (and over $2.8M for his career). Smith won the $100k Aussie Millions buy-in event and had five 2012 WSOP cashes. Now he’s poised to take down his first EPT High Roller event.
Smith will take the chip lead to the final table, stacked at 5,108,000. He’s followed by Mike McDonald with 4,650,000.
In fourth overall is Erik Seidel (698,000). Behind him is Ilari Sahamies (685,000).
First earns €1,075,500 ($1,325,123). Get full final table chip counts here.
