Darrell Dicken, whose last name has "dick" in it which therefore makes it funny, has extended his lead at the WPT Mirage Poker Showdown. After pounding the competition during Day 2 and nearly lapping the field, Dicken’s chip count continues to rise, and he is now impressively stacked at 1,167,000. Reports are his stack is long and most importantly, has thick girth. Dick. En.
Trailing Dicken is Cory Carroll stacked at 697,000. Cory won a WSOP Circuit main event earlier this month at Caesar’s Palace.
The TV final table looks to be packed with some big names, as many high profile pros remain. For this season’s first WPT event, Darrell Dicken and crew are proving that the cream rises to the top.
Among those remaining include: Burt from Sesame Street (532,000), Phil Ivey (475,000), Shannon Shorr (197,000), John D’Agostino (186,000), Jon Friedberg (145,000), Nam Le (136,000), Davidson Matthew (111,000), David "the Dragon" Pham* (107,000), and Alan Goehring (60,000).
