Dwan Making Waves for a 2010 WSOP Bracelet

June 28, 2010

The bets are on the books and Dwan is playing poker! Rumor has it Tom “Durrrr” Dwan stands to win eight figures from various prop bets if he wins a 2010 WSOP gold bracelet.

At 23 years old, Dwan has already pocketed more than $530K in WSOP cashes since 2008. His first event at the 2008 WSOP landed him 7th place finisher and $67,000 in his pocket. Not a bad start considering the old pros he was playing with and his bright green youth. Five days later, Dwan made waves again finishing 8th in a second event at the 2008 WSOP where he took home an additional $45,000.

As with so many others, Dwan got his start playing poker online, but few have had the success or potential as he. Dwan is the 5th largest winner on Full Tilt Poker.com winning an estimated $3 million, a few dollars shy of famous pros Phil Ivey, David Benyamine, Di “Urindanger” Dang, and Niki “Kaibuxxe” Jedlicka. Dwan now has an estimated poker bankroll nearing the $10 million mark.

Dwan is halfway through the 2010 WSOP, and there’s no stopping Tom “Durrrr” Dwan from aggressively playing each event to win the prized gold bracelet at the final table. He needs to tighten up if he’s going to a bracelet ceremony, however.

Off to a not-so-promising start, 2010 WSOP Event #6 was Dwan’s first event where he landed 35th place and $16,000. His second event, Event #11, found Dwan 2nd place finisher and $381,000. Close, but no cigar. Dwan fell way behind in Event #31 landing 74th place and a measly $2,800.

If Dwan is going to win that coveted bracelet, he’s going to have to step up his game. With the likes of Dwan’s competition, namely Men “the Master” Nguyen, Phil Ivey, Michael Mizrachi, and James Dempsey, winning a 2010 WSOP bracelet isn’t going to be easy. And considering the eight-figure bets at stake, Dwan needs to get his head in the game-fast.
