Tom “durrrr” Dwan has been a mysterious figure in the poker world over the past few years. His poker career has confused many, on top of being quite impressive on the felt.
Tom Dwan’s introduction to poker
Tom “durrrr” Dwan was born in Edison in the state of New Jersey on July 30, 1986. His educational ambitions led him to Boston University to pursue a degree in engineering. However, his overwhelming passion for competition along with gambling landed him in the online poker world.
At the age of 18, with a $50 birthday gift from his father, Dwan ventured into online poker at Paradise Poker. With only $50, he started with sit-n-go tournaments where he had successive victories that later led him into cash games.
Sooner than later, he established a bankroll that could accommodate the high-stake games. As the passion grew deeper, he completely shifted his attention from school to playing full time poker. Life out of school gave him enough time to concentrate fully on poker, augmenting his confidence besides being the platform for his current success.
In the world of Poker
Dwan currently plays online and participates in the biggest-stakes Pot-Limit Omaha and No-Limit Texas Hold‘em games. He players under the online pseudonym, ‘durrrr’.
Dwan became a ‘pro’ for Full Tilt on 15 October 2012.
Alongside winning millions in cash games, Dwan has made several appearances in major poker games such as NBC’s National Heads-Up Poker Championship, Poker After Dark, Full Tilt Poker’s Million Dollar Cash Games and GSN’s High Stakes Poker.
Dwan’s biggest tournament cashes are as follows:
– 2014 Aussie Millions $250,000 Challenge (AU$500,000)
– 2014 WSOP $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event ($381,885)
– 2007 World Poker Finals WPT event ($324,244)
