Online poker superstar Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan is back, and it’s of course at the highest stakes!
Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan has registered for the Triton Super High Roller Event in Manila which will take place in November this year.
There has been a lot of debate around where Dwan has been. Dwan was known to play the absolute highest stakes poker on and offline. Winning and losing a million dollars in a day was quite typical for Dwan.
The Super High Roller event in Manila is a $200,000 buy-in and also has Dan ‘jungleman’ Cates already registered. The event will take place at the Poker King Club.
Plenty of rumors floating around stated that Dwan was broke, or even owed the Triads millions of dollars. Whatever the case, Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan is back and it will be great to see him in action.
Who else has registered for the event?
On top of Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and Dan ‘jungleman’ Cates, there is confirmation that Mustafa Kanit and John Juanda have both also registered.
This event will surely draw more of pokers elite to Manila, as last years event saw more than $3 million for first place. It was, of course, taken down by Fedor Holz. Here are last years results:
1st Fedor Holz $3,072,748
2nd David Peters $2,699,752
3rd Devan Tang $1,405,500

5th Phil Ivey $656,500
6th Daniel Colman $502,000
