Darryll Fish
Fish Jumps into the Frying Pan

South Florida pro Darryll Fish (Fort Lauderdale, FL) joins the field and doesn’t have an easy draw. The table features John Pappas (Tampa, FL), runner-up in Event 7 ($250 buy-in) for nearly $8,000 earlier this week, and Filipp Khavin (Treasure Island, FL) who won the Deep Stack Turbo here in June.

Fish returns to Tampa where he finished 2nd in 2011 for nearly $80,000. He was runner-up to Dan Clemente (Hernando, MS) in the WPT Regional stop at Hard Rock.

“I haven’t had a home base in awhile,” says Fish, “I consider Earth my home, but if I have to represent one place it’s Fort Lauderdale.”

Fish has more than $1.4 million in career tournament earnings and says he’s recently been playing a lot of cash games including last night’s high stakes game in the Poker Room.
