Dan Smith is a professional American player who discovered poker at the age of 16. Prior to this, he was fond of chess and demonstrated excellent results. Soon Smith realized that he was tired of chess, and the game doesn’t bring him pleasure anymore. This awareness prompted him to study poker in more detail. Dan got focused on the game so much that soon college education took a back seat, and later he completely left it for a career of a professional poker player.
After a short while Smith has managed to become one of the top players in the world. Dan won his first money in live event in 2008 and since then his success has continued. During his career, he was lucky enough to win 7-figure sums in live events for nine times. The first sum he earned, having become the champion of 100 000$ Challenge at the Aussie Millions Poker Championship in 2012. For a long time the biggest Dan’s win was the 3rd place in The Big One for One Drop for 1 000 000$ at the WSOP 2018, where he earned 4 000 000$. But in 2019, Smith broke his record, getting $8.76 million for third place in the Triton Million at the Triton Poker Super High Roller 2019 series.
Smith is also successful in online and has already managed to earn about 3 million dollars. He plays under the "Danny98765" nickname on PokerStars.
