In Pictures: Tom Dwan resurfaces, Scarmak3r unreal poker graph, Wild PLO action on partypoker

Tom Dwan resurfaces at the Aria

The elusive legend of the game Tom “Durrr” Dwan has been spotted playing cash games at the Aria in Las Vegas early December.

Jean-Robert Bellande posted this picture on Instagram on 6th December, followed by comments on social media about Tom’s skin colour, specifically about not looking like a vampire anymore, and the cast on his wrist.

Dwan is rarely seen playing in public as it’s rumoured that he spends most of his time in private nosebleed games in Macau’s backrooms.

The last time we saw Dwan play was at the televised Triton Cash Games in Jeju in July, which did not end up well for him. You can read about this event here.

Wild PLO action on partypoker

The high stakes PLO games on partypoker begin to achieve legendary status.

Wild action can be found here on a regular basis often involving the likes of Dusk Till Dawn casino head Rob Yong and Sam Trickett. Both allegedly booked a $300k win in a $200/$400 session in the last week in November that was live streamed and commentated on by PLO lover Joey Ingram on his own channel.

Some of the players’ identities in these games are still secret and can only be speculated on. ‘swordfishAA’ however is known to be the Australian Matt Kirk, who has made millions of dollars through his early Bitcoin investments.
