Tom Dwan Not Having a Fantastic 2009.
Tom Dwan, also known as the infamous “Durrr” on Full Tilt Poker, is not exactly having the most stellar start to his new year - especially on the virtual felt.
After making his “heads-up challenge to the world” at the beginning of 2009, Dwan has literally had to eat his own words on the high stakes tables this year, and is paying the cost dearly via his bankroll.
You may ask yourself, “just how down is Dwan right about now? ”
Well, “down” to the tone of just over $3 million in the first 3 weeks of this year - which is more than HALF of his total profit for all of 2008!
Whether its just variance taking its toll on the young phenom or just ego getting a bit of a karma wake-up call, this is certainly not the way “Durrr” had imagined he would be running in the cash games he once owned throughout the latter part of 2008.
It’ll be very interesting to see how much he’ll be able to hold up after he answers the takers of his aforementioned heads-up challenge. I’m sure Patrik Antonious and Phil Ivey are itching to get a piece of the “kid” while he’s in a massive downswing.
