Dan Nassif, World Series of Poker

Dan Nassif is the St. Louisan who made the final table at the main event of the World Series of Poker a couple of weeks ago, and earned over $1.5 million. This afternoon, I talked to him about the experience on my KMOX show.

He explained the advice he was given by the guys who won the event the last two years (Greg Raymer and Joe Hachem), how he was physically drained before and during the tournament, what happened on the hand that eliminated him, and what he did when he ran out of underwear.

Listen to the conversation here.

ESPN's coverage of the main event starts tomorrow night, August 22nd.
