The video that has shocked the world and caused United Airlines to lose $1 billion of its valuation on the stock market at one point Tuesday continues to go viral and finally the passenger dragged off Sunday night’s Louisville-bound flight has finally been identified.
He’s Dr. David Dao and, as it turns out, he’s had a successful run on the live poker circuit.
TMZ.com is reporting that Dao joined the poker circuit in July 2006 -- one year after his medical license was suspended due to multiple convictions for illegally prescribing painkillers.
In 2009, he came in 2nd in a tournament and walked away with more than $117k.
His player profile shows total earnings of $234,664 in the WSOP.
