The all-new Poker After Dark show started on Monday August 14th and it seems like poker legend Tom "durrrr" Dwan is already on fire, as he has created some excitement already after winning a $700,000 pot against Antonio Esfandiari on the first day of play.

They made it quite easy for him. Bellande, Roberts and Klein are not a match for top pros, and they are there on all three days. Sure, Negranu and Esfandiari are tough opposition, but are there only one day, while Robl is not as good as they are, and Brunson is wise enough not to play to much against Dwan.

He's back in force. If he earned a very large amount of money from the first day it is clear he wants to do great things. Let's see the replies of the other players and how he will succeed in overcoming important moments. Is a shark over sharks this Tom Dwan. Very good player.
Posted by shokaku: Negreanu just had to fold the queens here. Those guys may play very loose preflop, but after that much action, including an all in and a call, he no longer could expect his queens to be good.
I notice almost all of them play more loose if the cameras are around.

In Russia this show was shown on TV and it was very interesting to watch this show ..... I then did not play poker online and I learned the understanding of poker from this program .... Of course now this show on TV will not be shown But now everything can be found on the Internet

That´s a amzing 700k pot winning for Durr against Esfandiari. In the high roller games like poker after dark they have unbelievable big stacks at the table. But it was nice to see, that his comeback was good, so we can expected more interesting tv shows in the future.

I think Tom Dwan enjoys a lot of these televised poker games. He plays very loose, very lucky and with millionaires wells for all the viewers but less for him, since he is accustomed to play high stakes in Macau by figures much higher than these. That's why I think it's one of the reasons why he plays more relieved and he is enjoying the game.-

well to be honest I think this is just some epic bullsh1t, there is no real money involved and they are just given some you can almost call play chips to splash, seriously doubt any of it comes from their own pockets, so loose game is exactly what poker industry wants to promote...
