Darren Woods Nears Event #29: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship Final

Another Brit is a stones throw away from a high profile WSOP final table as Darren Woods is 5th out of the last 13 in the Event #29: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship. Not much is known about Woods but he is holding his own in a tough field that still includes David Baker, Michael Mizrachi and Brock Parker. They will play down to a winner tonight where one man will walk away with $425,969.

A limit hold’em bracelet would mean a hold’em clean sweep for the Brits this year as we already boast a No Limit and a Pot Limit strap in 2010. Woods from Lincolnshire would be an overnight superstar were he to take this event down, find out how he does via our Event #29: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship Live Updates tonight.
