Di "Urindanger" Dang: "I don’t play online anymore"

The $25,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Championship at the WSOP has attracted many well-known poker players to Las Vegas this year.

The event is now down to final 20 players from the initial starting field of 184 players. Ludovic Geilich from United Kingdom is currently leading the way with 3,025,000 in chips, and right behind him are poker brothers Michael Mizrachi (2,435,000) and Robert Mizrachi (2,245,000).

Also still in the hunt are players like Paul "paulgees81" Volpe (1,430,000), Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen (1,165,000) and Dan Smith (1,160,000). Di "Urindanger" Dang on the other hand is just one of the players who has been eliminated from the tournament.

Dang, who still yesterday was alive in this event, spoke to PokerListings on the break. According to the interview, Dang is not playing online poker anymore but plays occasionally some live poker. He has now turned his focus completely to restaurants with his brother Hac "trex313" Dang:

"It’s going pretty well. We have three restaurants now and we’re going to have two more by the end of the year. I’m a lot more nervous now. This is a $25,000 tournament, which is a really big event, but back in the day we played really high. We bought into Macau for $250,000 one time.", Dang said.

All of the remaining players in the $25K PLO Championship have now guaranteed at least $42,435 for making it this far. First place nets a whopping $1,127,035 and a coveted WSOP gold bracelet.
