The Kamikaze Korean

davin200Seems like more people than ever are playing poker.  If you had to point to a defining moment that kicked off "the poker boom", it would have to be when little-known Chris Moneymaker, an accountant by trade, parlayed a 40 dollar online satellite into the biggest win of his life, 2.5  million dollars in the Main Event of the 2003 WSOP... the most prestigious poker title in the world.  Chris qualified online because there wasn't a legal poker room within four hours of his home.  In Sacramento, we have Capitol Casino, an official WSOP satellite.  Saturday, April 4, Capitol is hosting the first of two WSOP Main Event satellite tournaments, and for a $220 buy in, you can win a 10K seat to the Main Event in Las Vegas.  Tournament director Davin Anderson knows a little something about the Main Event.... He finished 25th in 2004, the Greg Raymer year.... And won $120,000.  That's Davin, the "Kamikaze Korean" in the center.
