The legend

Thomas Dwan Tom attended Boston University as an engineering major before quitting school to play poker full-time. He’s wildly considered as one of the most dangerous and best high stakes cash game players in the world. His No Limit Hold Em and Pot Limit Omaha game is fearless, renovated and successful. His tournament results are still away, despite his only final table at the World Poker Tour. He appeared on different seasons of Poker After Dark, Million Dollar Cash Game and High Stakes Poker. He started his online poker career at Paradise Poker with $50 which he’ve turned in a online bankroll around $5 million which makes him one of the best online high stakes cash game player out there. Mr. Dwan has constantly huge swings with his online bankroll after frequently sick challenges with Antonius, Ivey, Brian Townsend, Ilari ‘ Zigmund ‘ Sahamies and others. But Durrrr still manages to recover his losses which proves he’s one of the best online guns. Tom holds the record for winning the largest pot ever in a recorded live game at over $1,100,000. It was televised during the 4th season of Full Tilt Poker’s Million Dollar Cash Game. Tom is also the creator of the Durrrr Challenge where anybody can play him for $ 1 million during 50,000 hands on NLHE or PLO. Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius have already accepted the offer.
