News and events in the Delaware region.
Dannie Powell from Dover, DE made an unbelievable run at the Sin City Showdown National Championship title. At the start of the day there were a total of 75 players from around the US that were all trying to win one of ten WSOP buy-ins the following day and first place which also came with a $10,000 buy-in to the main event. In the end Dannie outlasted 73 other people. It was looking good for him against Jeff Miller from NE after the flop in the final hand as he had the lead, but the turn changed it around and sent Dannie home in second place. Consolation prize, a seat into the WSOP event #54. Way to go Dannie, great run, and heck of a good job to represent the state of Delaware!!!
