It feels like it’s been a while since there has been a Tom Dwan sighting.
It seems the “decent” cash games that have accompanied the high roller challenge fields at the 2014 Aussie Millions, was enough to get the poker phenom to leave his nest in Macau and jump in on the action.
A tired, and more mature looking Tom Dwan, takes a few minutes before he gets some rest to check in with our pal Thomas Keeling (who is once again doing fantastic work for Bluff) to talk about how his cash game and tournament sessions are going. He also talks a little about why he hasn’t resumed the drawn out Durrrr Challenge with Dan “Jungleman” Cates.
Apparently there is a “big issue” over at Full Tilt Poker, the former sponsor of the high stakes pro, and it’s one that Dwan is looking to address soon. Keeling tries to be respectful and not press too hard but it sounds like it has something to do with play on the site as hand histories are referenced briefly and he says that Jungleman, while publicly calling out Dwan time and time again, knows of Dwan’s issue.
When asked about the status of the Challenge, Dwan told Keeling “I would like to play it now but I have other stuff going on. I don’t know. I mean, we don’t even have the hands from Full Tilt which is ridiculous…(they didn’t even put up a page?)...but I have another, more pressing issue with him, so…”
Looks like there Dwan has more he wishes he could say.
