A Boonville native was that close to a final table as the prestigious World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week.

Danard Petit, who now lives in Vegas, wound up with a 30th place finish in a field of 6,000 players.

His prize?

Just shy of $230,000.

Not bad at all, but he's surely thinking he could have gone further.

In fact, joining WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning, Petit spoke about the hand he lost with, and how he had laid a trap that his opponent dove at.

But, Petit's pocket-aces were not good as his opponent caught a straight - on the river, no less.
