WSOP NEWS: Central Florida players made some noise in the desert this summer. In the $1,500 Monster Stack, Darryl Woodruff finished 20th for $35,819.

The dream ended when he got called down by fourth pair. An unlucky break, but a great run nonetheless.

In the $1,500 mixed Omaha event, Matthew Gregorie, who played in the Tampa Bay area for a good deal of time before landing in Vegas recently, made the final table and finished fourth for $62,226.

Tampa native, bracelet-winner and former November Niner John Racener had a fantastic summer, making three final tables ($565 Colossus, eighth place, $74,178; $1,500 mix, fourth, $40,151; $50K high roller, seventh, $220K) and cashing nine times.

CASINO AT DANIA BEACH: A decade ago, Dania Jai-Alai had a large poker room that was a serious draw for single-table tournaments, often running more than 50 each day. It also hosted a popular Friday night $100 tourney that regularly drew 200-plus players.

After several incarnations of the poker room came and went with the addition of a new casino, business had dropped off, but some of the old glory is returning thanks to an old formula. A $100 Friday Big Slick event has grown since the room instituted a $20K guarantee, with $10K guaranteed for the winner, in May and fields have passed the 150-entry mark.
The poker room had the most gross tournament receipts in the state for May, as recorded by the Florida Department of Business Regulation. The room opens daily at noon and closes at 3 a.m. on most nights, staying open two hours longer on Friday and Saturday nights.
