WSOP Main Event: Dan Nassif on $550k

by Mad Harper

Dan Nassif wasn't really expecting to be in Vegas today. The 33-year-old advertising sales executive is taking vacation to play in the World Series - and last year he got knocked out on the first day when his tens ran into AK and the flop brought another King.

This year, it's a different story. Dan, from St Louis, Missouri, has some $550,000 six hours into Day 4 - and has had to extend his vacation to keep his seat here in the Amazon Room.
