2008 World Series: Super Dario leads final table

At the 2006 World Series, fellow blogger Howard Swains dubbed Dario Minieri "Super Dario."

Since then, Swains' description has proven true more than a few times. Dario Minieri, king of the "go big or go home" poker game, has made his way deep in a lot of big events and proven there is more method than madness to his style. Some people see the scarf-wrapped head and think kamikaze. More often than most people would like, Dario proves to be more of a guided missile.

Witness. Today, Super Dario leads the final table of the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event. Should he win the bracelet, he stands to make $528,418.


Congratulations to Team PokerStars Pro Bill Chen who finished in 19th place in the event for $15,594.

In other World Series news, Barry Greenstein and Daniel Negreanu are shooting for their second bracelets of the 2008 World Series. Both players made Day 2 of the $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low World Championship .

Good luck to Dario, Daniel, and Barry today.
