Sometimes the news makes us see the reality of things. After all, Tom Dwan is just a normal person like everybody else and, for loosing his passport, he needs to pass through a burocratic process to get everything done. Although we see him as a star, he’s just a citizen who needs documents to travel, like anyone else. Incredible how a little book can change someone’s life. He could have tried to say “Can you imagine i am loosing a minimum of $260k (not counting the Money he would try to win) just because you’re keeping me here?”.

Oh wow, lol. That's worse than a disconnect when you're about to win a crucial pot to get to the FT.

For $250k - he'll never lose his passport again surely.

That's one for the storybooks and I'll bet he was kicking himself over that, massively.

See, LIVE POKER is rigged too. It's just "convenient" that he "lost" his passport. Kidding of course.

LOL dwan, this'll be a "ONE TIME MISTAKE" for sure Big Smile He'll probably take Wozza's advice and attach it on himself so he wont lose it again.

Peanuts to him, he won't care about the money lost, just the ripping he'll get from other players.

Who cares why he didn't show up on that event. It isn't big money for him anyways so no damage done. But rly interesting how he loses his passport every now and then.
