Earlier today a report (or rumor, whichever you prefer) hit the internet that former Full Tilt Poker sponsored 'Professional’ Tom 'Durrrr’ Dwan took a Macau cash game for $25 million.
$25 million US Dollars.
The details are being reported by CardPlayer Latin America and, according to the story, Dwan was playing 4-handed in a 15/30 game. That’s $15,000/$30,000. It went down at StarWorld Casino in Macau, where reportedly Dwan is the only outsider to get a seat in the game —because he’s such an action player. It goes on to say that Dwan was playing against two Chinese pros and a billionaire in a rematch that, the first time, had him losing $7 million.
Of course, this is a translated story from a third hand account so take it with a grain of salt. That said, these are the kind of stories that poker legends are made of.
