READ: Washingtonian Profiles the Dang Brothers
Back in the old Full Tilt Poker nosebleed glory days, brothers Hac Dang and Di Dang were among the most feared and successful poker players on the planet.
According to HighStakesDB, they amassed a combined total of about $14 million in online cash game winnings. They traded blinds with Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius and the like in the $500/$1,000 games, winning a fortune while sharing a bankroll.
However the arrival of Black Friday prompted the brothers to go all in on the restaurant business, leaving their poker careers mostly behind. That's what they're still up today, albeit with new challenges to deal with thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Washingtonian profiled the Dangs' unusual journey to this point in a feature story. The outlet covered their days of playing high-stakes poker, tackling the down-and-dirty challenge of the restaurant business, and adjusting to the new normal during a global pandemic.
