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.
