poker player danny ryan - ept - european poker tourDanny "THE__D__RY" Ryan is currently sitting third in chips heading into the final table of the EPT Copenhagen event. He is in the midst of an incredible run that has seen him makes hundreds of thousands of dollars over just a few short months. On Saturday, he has a great chance of taking down the EPT Copenhagen main event and its first place prize of over one million dollars.

Ryan's remarkable run began at the end of December when he took down the $750k Guaranteed tournament on Full Tilt Poker for just over $46k.

He followed this up with a victory in a $109 rebuy event on Pokerstars for $37k, just one week later.

Next up was a second place finish in FTOPS #12, a $300+$22 Rebuy, $1 million dollar Guaranteed event on Full Tilt Poker. Ryan took down the second place prize of $170k. Ryan came within a hair of winning after his pocket fives were sucked out on by the pocket fours of "ilikeaces86". This was a huge pot and Ryan would have almost certainly gone on to take down the tournament had this hand held up.

Ryan went on to take down the $5200 Freezeout on Pokerstars last weekend. He chopped the tournament with "str8flushin5". "THE__D__RY" ended up winning $75k, and "str8flushin5" ended up with the other $25k.

Last but certainly not least, Ryan has an opportunity to take down the biggest score of his young career at the EPT Copenhagen event. He is currently third in chips with a stack of 557k. The chipleader is Tim Vance, who is well ahead of the rest of the field with a massive stack of over 1.408 million chips. Ryan may be well behind in chips, but if anyone can overcome that deficit at the table, it's him.

Good luck to "THE__D__RY" on Saturday.
