 Fakiry04/03/2011 15:32:49 GMT
Going all-in preflop with 10-10 in a game with this level of blinds? Who did that? Negreanu? If so, thats ok for him, but almost any other player should be imediately sent to a psychiatrist to make full evaluation of his mental capabilities... Not even being the first to talk, that can give him any type of excuse. I believe this guy must be very sick at this moment... JJ is ok, i understand, but 10-10?

Do people not read the nomments around here? This story has been declared and proven to be BS. Let's move on please.
 xxxYUMIxxx05/03/2011 11:14:37 GMT

hmmmmmmmmmm, but still i would like to find someone who what like to loose an 11 mio $ pot against me Sad I mean nobody wants to? That might be one of the greatest pots in poker history and your possibility to take part Blink
 agyorke05/03/2011 17:53:25 GMT
this kid is amazing,i think one of the best
 Kristan06/03/2011 21:33:06 GMT
That is Bull*hit story! lol, havent been round lately much, again Sad, but from what I know & been reading stakes they sit down at are likely the same as in FTP 10k/20k HKD.

11M on ak preflop Big Smile - right!
BRM should check a little more detailed info about those news, as it is a poker community site and to distract 2/3 of users here with this is plain awful imo.
 AndreyPkr07/03/2011 11:40:00 GMT
it's the biggest pot i ever heard in poker by now...to much money for one hand...that's the beauty of the poker...nice hand Tom

 remco250407/03/2011 18:19:24 GMT
C mon ...doesnt anybody read previous posts or something ???

This story is NOT TRUE !!! ITS BS !!!

Tom Dwan himself already twittered days ago that its made up !!!
 gtrippp07/03/2011 19:24:11 GMT
the 11 million should've been suspicious in itself. isn't that about how much the top 3 have earned in their whole careers? or is that just their tournament winnings? as for the guy who said he could understand going all in w/ jacks, but not w/ tens, is there really that big of a difference between the 2?
 intelegentas07/03/2011 20:29:45 GMT
Pretty big pot :O If i were him i would give 20% for charity .
 theszyna07/03/2011 23:07:58 GMT
i read about about 2/3 moths ago....he won it but before this hand was behind about that pot.....and yeaaa he played some rich businessman pricks in closed to the press session...closed of course because of the enormous amounts of money there....lol
 provoman08/03/2011 14:08:40 GMT
If flop not come A high he will loose 3.3 mil that is the sensation too.

 zammo50009/03/2011 08:29:21 GMT
you guys really expect tom to acknowledge that kind of fact, c'mon people that's like signing a confessional to the IRS. probably played with rich brats with mo' money than sense. BTW AK off pre-flop three-handed is in the probability arena pretty good. well done to the genius!!!!
 jessthehuman09/03/2011 08:43:56 GMT
I love how many people can't be fucked reading the whole thing. Seriously.
 BMWman09/03/2011 13:41:29 GMT
Just watched a video on Tom's facebook page, he says that this story is NOT true. Don't believe everything you read folks......
 todd331109/03/2011 13:59:31 GMT
wow,thats a nice pot,however i sure hope bone head tom spends a little of his winnings and gets some up to date shits,come on look at him,hes soooooo ugly with his 5$ skin head hair cut and his shirts he wears are like 1980s give me a break goofy tom,,its a good thing hes got money because he sure dont have a chance in hell to put up on anything remotely good looking,,unless he byes a bitch for a few hours,lol,lol, GOD HES UGLY

 Twistyoursou14/05/2014 22:24:12 GMT
Ya know, i'm just betting 2 years of 9 to 5 work as a blind just to see two cards... Not a big deal obviously... Standard routine

So you take a thread that is over 3 years old to say what. you betting 2 years of 9 to 5 work??? you have no clue nor do I , what you are trying to say.
Worship If your going to make a post try and figure out what your trying to say. Question Question Question Question Question
 Weenie15/05/2014 17:39:25 GMT
What a fcking sick gamblers Big Smile They put in almost 4 millions dollars with AK or pair of tens preflop... But I admire Dwan, hes there cause he knows he has skill, many other players are there just cause they are billionaires and like poker. And losing few millions there will not hurt them at all lol.
