Tom Dwan - the missing man

How convenient is it that he just falls off the face of the earth after issuing and bailing half way through a 50k hand challenge when he goes down over a million dollars?

He come out a year or so ago and said that he has this "big" problem with FTP that he would address once he had a decent nights sleep, what ever happened here?

He agreed to pay penalties on a monthly basis for not playing an agreed amount of hands with jungle, did cates ever receive any of the penalty money? I think it's about time the community got some answers. There was a lot of money placed on the outcome of the match which never got resolved, as you can imagine anyone who took jungle's side must be pretty aggrieved.

Ike and Justin bonomo was both judges along with Ivey being escrow, from what I remember Ivey wanted nothing to do with any of the decision making after dwan went AWOL which lead to phil sending jungle his 500k back. What's the point of having judges in any bet if they can't actually enforce any rulings?

If anyone else had bailed on a bet of this size when he should have escrowed the 1.5million it would be a much bigger deal.

To add to that he's listed to play in the 500k super high roller at the aria

Re: Tom Dwan - the missing man

My buddy from Macau says he's in deep to Wan Kuok-koi and his hourglass on showing a profit is running out. He was fooled by American television into thinking he was some kind of unbeatable LAG God of poker.

Maybe they could base his story for rounders 2.

Re: Tom Dwan - the missing man

if he really is in debt to the triads it will only end badly. but the rise and fall of tom dwan will make a decent B level movie someday.

Debt is very different from make-up. If Dwan structured this supposed arrangement at all intelligently, it's tough titties on the stakehorse if there's no profit.

On the other hand, I'm not saying that I would sleep completely soundly at night if I was in Dwan's spot...

rule #85748 in life: never take a stake/loan from a triad boss. it's just not a very wise thing to do.

I guess Hellmuth was right about whether or not he'd be around in a few years.
