WSOP 2010: A bracelet worth 2 million dollars

Tags: 2010 wsop, daniel negreanu, durrrr, phil ivey, tom dwan.
Posted on 03 June 2010 by "T".

To win a WSOP bracelet is for many the greatest achievement that can be reached in an entire poker career. Of course there are a few who think that a WSOP bracelet is piece of junk when others have so many bracelets that they even decide to sell 1 of them (I'm referring to Patrik Antonius and T.J. Cloutier). 

Anyhow, someone who's really longing for his very first bracelet this year is Tom "durrrr" Dwan. Dwan has been extremely successful online in the past few years and he has won over $50 million dollars throughout his career. 

However, he hasn't been so successful in live tournaments and he still hasn't won a bracelet. Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu and many other notables are sure that Dwan will fail to win a bracelet this year as well, and therefore they have betted lots of money against Tom Dwan. Thanks to so many "non-believers" Tom Dwan will get around $2 million dollars if he wins his very first bracelet in this year's WSOP. Tom Dwan will for the first time ever play the $1,500 events and do absolutely everything in his power to prove that he's as good at live poker as online poker. Well, for sure the money is quite tempting as well, but somehow I doubt that he really cares so much about the money - it's probably more about the challenge.

Good luck Dwan!

He will need it. Dwans style of playing poker is not well suited for tourney play.

There's been real contradiction these days about what a bracelet's worth for. Patrick Antonius set the record edgy the other day giving it no credit at all, while others swear in it and would be willing to give everything just to get a hold of one... As much as I understand the spirit of Antonius' sayings, the bottom line is that bracelets are a part of the poker hype and add prestige to the events

I'm with the "he won't get it" side. If anything, playing at the 1500 event will probably make him arrogant and he may even play worse than in the big events
 Kristan03/06/2010 18:10:23 GMT
Well, not sure about this year, but Im sure about one thing - he will get his bracelet in few years atleast Blink
 IslandJack03/06/2010 19:03:17 GMT
I'm thinking he's going to get that bracelet this year.
He has about 2.000.000 good reasons to do it! Big Smile
 Calmplay03/06/2010 19:11:29 GMT
Even if there's 2 extra millions dollar to win if he wins a bracelet this year, I'm still convinced he'll not win it. Come on, MTTs is not Tom's specialty...

I see Tom winning a MTTs with at least 500 entrants in only 3 years.
 DAGOR03/06/2010 19:47:04 GMT
Hello everybody!
It's true his game is really not made for tournaments. In addition to the wsop it may fall on more than donk himself.
See you soon for new posts lol!
 MANUEDO03/06/2010 20:33:56 GMT
I think he will be able to win one of it, not in the main event maybe but he will win. I watched him playing at tables and it's very funny to see his eyes lost around when he goes all in
 LeGambleurs04/06/2010 02:52:31 GMT
good luck to you, hehe Smile
 NaziPal04/06/2010 08:58:48 GMT
If ever Dwan wins it would be as much a moral vicotry as it is a financial one. It would prove once and for all that all new bloods, have good all around skills at poker, it would also mean that his arsenal is more complete than everyone suspects and that he has the discipline to win at live poker even tho he is used to fast online games.

Good luck Tom!
 mazas04/06/2010 09:47:58 GMT
hope one day anyone brm user will play at the wcop and win it and share here all emotions good lucxk all chaser

He's not gonna get it. Even if there was 10M$ for him to make, he'd still not make it. He's a good poker player, but we all know that it's not his cup of tea!
He can make it one day, but he's gonna need a lot of luck to do that.

i dont think you can put a price on something so sentimental.....honestly i would have asked to be buried with it
 kazman05/06/2010 13:49:42 GMT
Just agrre, he will never win a tourney.
Hes a good online and cash game player, but tourneys are a way different to his style.
 turnstyl306/06/2010 13:40:36 GMT
well you may just have to all eat your words as he is currently chip leader in a $1500 event with only 17 runners left!!!
 MadMurkin06/06/2010 16:17:52 GMT
He has really won 50 million with that style of play? WOW! I doubt he will win a mtt but he may just change his whole style of play just to shut the other pro's up. Time will tell.
 mazas06/06/2010 18:25:23 GMT
good luck chasers

 Piotrunnio07/06/2010 13:41:36 GMT
He is reallly great poker player and I'm sure that he will win his first bracelet max on WSOP 2011. But also he can take it in this year

Dwan could do it, he had 2nd place in one tournament.

 SuperNoob08/07/2010 17:20:21 GMT
i think hes too aggressive and careless to win a wsop bracelet,as history has shown him getting out early. but would be really gr8 if he manages to win that and win tht 2 mil$ too
