Biography

Dan Smith's name first appeared on the live tournament circuit in 2008 when the young American took down the Heartland Poker Tour Verona $1,500 Main Event and went home with $101,960 in cash. Since then things only got better for Smith, he's now got 12 WSOP money finishes including one final table, one WPT cash and an outstanding record at the European poker tables.

Intro

Dan Smith is an American professional poker player currently residing in Las Vegas, Nevada. Smith started traveling the poker circuit in 2008, but only switched to a higher gear in 2010 when he cashed in two World Series of Poker Events. In 2011 he scored his first WPT money finish and got four more WSOP cashes. However, the year 2012 by far has been the most successful for the young poker prodigy. He won the $100,000 Challenge event at the Aussie Millions, then won three EPT Grand Final side events in Monte Carlo, made six WSOP money finishes including one final table, and then collected the EPT Barcelona Super High Roller title.

World Series of Poker

Smith collected his first WSOP cash in 2010 when he finished in 383rd place in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $1,877. However, this was only the beginning as he scored eleven more money finishes since then. He's biggest World Series cash came in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em event in the summer of 2012. Smith finished that event in third place and took home almost $370,000 in prize money.
