Dwan’s Downswing Comes to an End

Tom Dwan
Finally, Tom "durrrr" Dwan has something to smile about.

After losing more than $4.2 million immediately after signing with Team Full Tilt, Tom “durrrr” Dwan’s massive downswing might have finally come to an end last night.

Two things happened for Dwan on Nov. 9: His signing as a Full Tilt Pro was officially announced and he sat down to his first heads-up session against an unknown player calling himself Isildur1.

Over the next three days Dwan got out-played, and out-lucked, for over $3 million, starting a horrific year-end downswing.

Over the next three weeks Dwan continued to struggle at the tables, especially against Isildur1. At the time of publication, Dwan’s losses to the unknown Isildur1 total a staggering $5.2 million.

Thanks to some occasional wins against other players along the way, Dwan’s total losses from Nov. 9 to Dec. 3 come to just over $4.2 million.

After dropping down in limits, playing as low as $25/$50, it began to look as if Dwan was at the end of his roll - Until last night.

Dwan played two sessions last night, the first taking place at six-max $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha against a changing cast of opponents, including Di “Urindanger” Dang, Patrik Antonius and harrington25. Dwan finished in the black across the five tables, up $145k.

The second session came on Tilt’s 7-Game tables, where he dominated the field to take down over $483k.

Having finally booked a winning session, Dwan took the first step towards digging himself out the deep hole he’s been in for the majority of the year. He's now down around $6.2 million on the year.

Three players all hit the crap out of that flop.

Urindanger was drawing dead on the turn.

If he wasn't ahead on the flop, the turn sure helped.
