In 2008, Tom ‘Durrr’ Dwan arrived onto the poker scene with jet fuel coming out of his behind. The lad from Edison, New Jersey, blazed a trail through the world of online poker that started with a $50 bankroll before peaking at $5.4 million.
The world took notice and everyone wanted a piece of Tom Dwan. Then, in 2009, it all went south when Dwan found himself on the end of the biggest downswing of his life, losing $2 million to Phil Ivey and Llari ‘Ziigmund’ Sahamies and $5 million to the newest online wizard on the block, Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom.
Since that monstrous loss, Dwan took a step back and returned to grinding in the only way he knew how. According to HighStakes DB.com Dwan was back up to $6.72 million by mid-2010.
Then, the world of online poker faced Black Friday. The catastrophe sent Durrrr over to Asia where he started crushing the highest live cash games available in Macau. Then, in late 2012, PokerStars breathed new life into Full Tilt Poker and Durrr returned to the place where he made his name.
It did not start well for the former poster boy of Full Tilt; he quickly dropped seven figures in just a few appearances on the virtual felt.
Then, in a rush than only a few people are capable of creating, Dwan was back at it. He crushed the best competition that the world could provide at the Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) and 2-7 Triple Draw No Limit tables. Dwan walked away with over $2.1 million in winnings, more than enough to put a smile on anybody’s face.
