Dan Dykehouse is in the field, hailing from Sioux Falls, he travels to play several events a year at the Horseshoe in Council Bluffs.

He says it's a great room with a great staff and thinks it would be exciting to be on Poker After Dark. If he final tables this Main Event, he will be one step closer to the PAD stage, earning his spot in the RGPS Showbound satellite.

He works as a general manager and when he was asked how long he's been playing poker, he responded with a bit of a sigh.

He's made it this far through the field as the break approaches, with four more levels to play before the players bag for the night.
