WSOP Event #37: Dario Minieri's stud performance

wsop2009_thn.gifWe know all about Team PokerStars Pro Dario Minieri's No Limit Hold'em ability: he's been a tiny terror at the WSOP and EPT for a few years now, and his tournament play online at PokerStars is more than impressive.

What we didn't know is that he's become a bit handy at Stud as well. In day two of the WSOP $10,000 7-card Stud Hi-Low 8 or Better, he's an impressive third in chips (132,000) with 75 runners of the 164 starters remaining.

While there's still a long way to go, that's an impressive performance given that so many big names specialise in these Stud variants - such as Jeff Lisandro, currently second in chips (175,000).

Still also in the hunt in this world championship event are Greg Raymer (53,000) and Friend Of Pokerstars Bill Chen (73,000), while Chad Brown and Daniel Negreanu have bitten the dust.
