Tom Dwan's First Live Tourney Cash Since 2014

Tags: high stakes, Macau, Mikita Badziakouski, Tom Dwan.
Posted on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 by "T".

Tom Dwan, best known as "durrrr" at Full Tilt's high-stakes tables before Black Friday, made a rare appearance in a live poker tournament last weekend when he entered the HK$500,000 (approx. US $64,000) Super High Roller of the 2017 Macau Billionaire Poker (MBP) Spring Challenge.

The tournament saw a field of 12 players, including Dwan, German high-stakes expert Philipp Gruissem and Belarusian poker pro Mikita Badziakouski. Dwan and Badziakouski eventually played heads-up for the title. In the final hand, Dwan found himself all in with KHeart3Spade against the AClubKClub of Badziakouski and the board ran out QDiamond10SpadeADiamond4Diamond2Spade to give Badziakouski the title and the first-place prize of approximately US$420,000. Dwan received US$275,000 for his second place finish.

According to pokernews.com, this was Dwan's first live cash since February 2014 when he finished 6th in the A$250,000 Challenge at the Aussie Millions. There have been a lot of talk about Dwan as of late. Some claim that he owes people millions of dollars and is hiding under a rock to avoid paying off his debts while others, including Phil Hellmuth in a recent interview, believe that he's doing extremly well for himself in Macau, playing cash games where several million dollars change owners in a single session.

hes like a evil tony dunst....or just dunst on opioids

did anyone try interview him? or maybe one of the others except gruissem as he says nothing even when he is try to give info
 DaCapo713/21/2017 7:25:25 PM GMT
That's not so easy to play his a-game after a while without cashes at the live tables. He have a aggressive playing style and so it can happen verry fast to go on tilt. Gratz for his discipline this time and his first live cash after a long time !
 damosk3/21/2017 8:07:57 PM GMT
So, congratulations for Mr Dwan on reassuring us all that he is still around and playing some poker. He's clearly not at broke with the buy in involved unless that was borrowed money and gets him into potentially a position where he can start clearing whatever he needs to clear... probably mainly his name and rebuild his career.
 pochui3/21/2017 8:58:31 PM GMT
well this kinda typifies dwan, final hand all-in with K3 off suit... fcuk yeah, brings back the days when blom was introducing the new starting hands charts to the mass public. this is actually good news for dwan, at least he can start repaying that debt that we were informed in the previous post.
 Mober3/21/2017 9:24:41 PM GMT
About time to win something.
But how much of his debt this takes out? Smile
It is though a bankroll that can help any bounce back.
All he needs is a few good games to make it up to a million.
Unless he continues his tradition Smile
 pajalnick3/22/2017 12:00:04 AM GMT
Badziakouski played a good tournament and in the final hand beat the famous player ..... this is certainly a good achievement and I'm glad that he achieved it .... as for Tom Dvan then of course it's good that he is back in the game and maybe solved his problems
 Robbo19903/22/2017 12:33:40 AM GMT
thats to say dwan has any problems. maybe he has been playing other tournaments - especially these super buy in ones which are off the map.
 Tony_MON7ANA3/22/2017 2:49:24 AM GMT
Huge congratulations go out to Tom Dwan for his runner-up finish in the Macau Billionaire tournament. US$275,000 is probably not a life-changing amount of money for him, but should be enough to spend the entire night at an exclusive club with his friends.
 StheP3/22/2017 3:36:56 AM GMT
here is video of that tournament... but its on chinese....

I would really like to know the truth about how much Tom Dwan owes or doesnt, but i doubt we will ever find out the real story. Lots of rumours surround this guy and it will be fascinating to find out what is going on
 bowie19843/22/2017 11:42:21 AM GMT
Macau is really not the best place to hide IMO, any 'former friend' of his could just give 10k to the local triads and next day boom, no more debt problem or simply no more problem at all...
 Gerimantas3/22/2017 12:46:26 PM GMT
This is big money that all of yse would be very happy to win some day, for such a famous players like tom dwan I think this is not super money, but if he played this tournament he did decide that he wants to take this money so maybe it is big even to him?

... Big Smile< ...I have it on good word that Spock banged some Earth woman while on leave,...and produced Tom Dwan... Big Smile

... Big Smile< ...To ME,...the guy seems to be a super donk on steroids the way he plays,...and in the long run,...I'm not surprised he owes lot's of cash to some folks...! Confused

G'day mate

If what you say is true then he is not listening to his fathers advice.
Spoke clear say's " Live long & Prosper ".

If he owe anywhere near what some people thinks he does then he is clearly not prospering.
Hmm well if he is really just a donk then he was one very lucky donk who was on one hell of a heater in the past.

wishing you all the best
be cool

Dunno, but I think more pro poker players live their lives with borrowed money than we know about. Yeah, some of them a dgen gamblers but some of them just seeing as a credit opportunity with less juice than taking money from the banks...
 StheP3/29/2017 2:23:00 PM GMT
well dwan was realy good, maybe the best in his time...but poker is game where you must improve all the time... if you dont improve, there will be better players than you... and I think dwan just didnt evolved his game to be better, and end up in huge downswing...
 Tony_MON7ANA3/30/2017 12:23:46 AM GMT
The super aggressive player is (used to be) one of the most profitable types of players. But it is very important even for winning players to diligently analyze the game so that they are prepared to make adjustments to their playing style.
 Tony_MON7ANA3/31/2017 3:00:13 AM GMT
LOL, thanks for downvoting the post #18. I know who did it. I can keep track of all the up/downvotes. So, if you got a problem with me, say it to my face. Don't even try to hide.
Should I try to write a blunt, simple, and raw comment like this so that there would be less ambiguity, LMFAO?

good for you. now if you can please stop saying congrats to whoever wins a poker tournament like they will see your post and be grateful for you hollow support. a problem which i have said to you before, unfortunately i never plan to travel to japan for numerous reasons, so cannot say it directly to your face

you want the reason why i downvoted this one? you are 'assuming' without saying that you are, that dwan is a losing player or that he still plays the way he did on tv. even if he did still play that way, the fact he just came second in a high roller shows that his style works

Your above statement is irrelevant, tangential and based on prejudice.

You got bigger problems than I do and you are leaving this forum pretty soon, that I am certain of.
 DaCapo713/31/2017 5:53:48 AM GMT
I´ve heard nothing about Tom Dwan for a long time, but he was one of the best online highroller in the past at FT. And that he won in a live poker tournament after three years was nice, perhaps he tried more live games in the future Blink

hows it irrelevant? its not erratic, and upon what prejudice is it based? do you know what these words mean? you called me out, i told you why i downvoted and now you still have a cry

also you are making a pretty big threat, especially considering you have downvoted 1071 times and me 67 times.....and i dont see you explaining why.

You must be joking, right? Are you seriously asking me if I know the meanings of these words? Of course I do. Did you go to graduate school? I guess not. Did you even finish high school? Well, you don't need to answer that.
I don't make any threat. What the hell are you talking about?
It is an undeniable fact that you have given me negative ratings at least 15 times in the past 6 months. You are one of those pathetic haters.

Now do yourself a favor and stay away from my sight. And get a life, FFS.

i ask you because you say words out of pure dribble - the threat was that id be leaving this forum soon....so yeah dont need to pass kindergarten to figure that out.

ahh those 15 were as i explained, commenting 'congrats, blah blah' on a news post just for 10points, its very obvious hence why i down vote...again i tell you this 3 times atleast and you still get infuriated by it ... i get downvoted but i dont make a scene about it

You sound like you have a fifth grade education. Do not quote outdated comment and proofread prior to submission.

I don't think Tom "durrrr" Dwan plays a lot of live tournaments. He's always been mostly an online player and more improtantly a cash games player. I don't think anyone here on bankrollmob is good enough at poker to even judge Dwan's game. The guy is a wizard, give respect where it's due. And yeah just because he makes uber aggro moves doesn't mean he can't switch gears. Being a nit is easy anyone can do that.

GL guys

actualy I agree with you in almoust anything... and if you are a nit, you are not for sure amoung best players... I agree that he WAS cash game specialist, and one of the best, if not the best at his time... also he was good at tournies... he had a couple of tournies won... but like I said in my prevous post, you must improve all the time... and when he was best, that time was long past...there are a lot of players now that are better than him... I am not saiying that he is bad... just wanna say that he didnt improved.... and that explains his debits...

I dont even think you know what you are saying as you make no sense - you are the one that is erratic. well im sure the pro's who are not apart of this forum thank you for your anonymous hollow support - which means its pointless = farming credits. also ofcourse i dont have 5th grade education, we dont have the same system as the yanks. so annoying when idiots try to argue - over a down vote of all things.
 Tony_MON7ANA4/1/2017 3:37:07 AM GMT
You seem to be obsessed with the word "tangential" I used before. And obviously you are not quite familiar with that word. You blindly assume that "tangential" in that context solely implies "erratic." Incorrect reasoning.
Your ability to steer conversations into ditches is remarkable. Absolutely not normal.

i have used it twice, hardly cause to call it obsessive. either form of the words meaning is non linear so maybe you arent familiar with the term erratic? you blindly fail to see yourself trip over your own words, making things out of nothing just so you can use a fancy English word. please, you are the non normal one here, its simple to see in your English and behavior - you are making a big deal over a down vote because you say the same dribble each and every post, and then try and argue your way out of it - though i understand the Japanese culture of 'dieing by your own sword', however this time the honorable thing to do is to leave.

also this isnt a conversation - a conversation implies cordial, this is in stark contrast .... might be time to stop going through a thesaurus

Another rambling comment.
You apparently didn't know the contextual meaning of "tangential." And you often fail to fathom the true meaning of my deeply thought-out comments.
As always there are errors in your post. It is "dying" not "dieing." You want me to point out all the mistakes you made in your 266 posts?

I don't have time to babysit an erratic, ignorant, bigoted idiot. So, I leave you alone, completely alone. EOC.
