Tom "durrrr" Dwan Signs Deal with Full Tilt PokerPublished on November 8th, 2009 8:39 pm EST
Tom "durrrr" Dwan is now officially a member of "Team Full Tilt" on Full Tilt Poker.
Prior to today, Tom Dwan, who is described by Full Tilt Poker as a "legendary online player", was easily the best player in the world without a deal with an online poker room.
Dwan is now a member of "Team Full Tilt", joining the likes of Phil Ivey, Erick Lindgren and Mike Matusow. Though the specifics of the deal will never been released, I think that it is safe to assume that Dwan received a small equity position in the company as part of the deal.
People have been speculating for months as to whether or not Full Tilt Poker would eventually ink "durrrr" to a deal. Some well-known pros have openly debated the value of Dwan as a member of "Team Full Tilt", but the higher-ups at FTP obviously thought that he was worth it.
Dwan, despite being in his early 20s, has already established himself as one of the top poker players in the world. He is easily one of the best cash game players on the planet, and has already accumulated over $1.1 million dollars in tournament cashes despite rarely playing in tournaments.
With this deal, Full Tilt Poker can now count three of the best poker players in the world (Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Tom "durrrr" Dwan) as members of "Team Full Tilt".
