Tom “durrrr” Dwan Picks Macau Over WSOP
While we have been treated to a double-helping of Phil Ivey this summer there’s one former Full Tilter who’s been conspicuously absent..
Tom “durrrr” Dwan has so far skipped the WSOP, choosing instead to play the ultra-high stakes games in Macau.
But just because Dwan isn’t here in Las Vegas, doesn’t mean we can’t bring you a few recently played hand reports. Dwan has been tweeting all manner of things from Macau, including the following high-stakes hands.
Hand from yest: 2k-5k hk (abt 300-600us); nit raises utg to 15, I call a5ss, 4 others call. Flop 7h5c3s; chch, nit bets 65k, I call, fld,fld— Tom Dwan (@TomDwan) June 25, 2012
Good friend of mine in sb shoves for 430k. Nit snap folds. I sit there angrily and figure he must have it vs the nit so I fold. He shows aq— Tom Dwan (@TomDwan) June 25, 2012

Will Reynolds Confronts Annie Duke
It’s surprising that Annie Duke has spent so much time at the WSOP so far this summer, based on the amount of negativity that’s surrounded her in the wake of FS+G and Epic Poker folding.
What began with Jason DeWitt telling Duke to go f*** herself a couple weeks ago continued today with William Reynolds confronting Duke in the $2,500 No-Limit event.
Reynolds snapped the first picture below while Galen Hall, who described the exchange as a “friendly conversation” shot the second.
