Most of the players in the Main Event have named at least one player they're looking forward to possibly playing with if they win a spot on Poker After Dark.

"I'm not thinking that far ahead," says Daryl Oppelt.

Oppelt works in mechanical design and drove here from Brookings, SD. He's played poker for about ten years and has $48,018 in career winnings. His largest cash to date is $12,053 from a third-place finish in 2003

He's sitting just under starting stack.
