Dr. David Dao was yanked off a United Airlines flight just over a week ago and social media went wild.  The airline had overbooked the flight and randomly selected Dao to be removed in order to accommodate United flight crew.  He refused.

Dao, it turns out, was an accomplished poker pro and once that news broke, his search results on the Hendon Mob database topped the list. 

Fedor Holz, who ranked number one last week, dropped to number two. 

Dao, who has had a handful of 2nd and 3rd place finishes on the WSOP Circuit, had not appeared among the search result rankings in the previous week.

The 69-year-old Louisville doctor has retained an attorney and was expected to sue the airliner.  Dao suffered a number of injuries including a broken nose during the incident.
