Tom Dwan on Black Friday, the cash games in Macau etc

It has been a very long time since Tom "durrrr" Dwan gave an interview. But at Aussie Millions, which is being played at the Crown Casino right now, he talked about, for example, Black Friday, the cash games in Macau and his plans for 2012.

On Full Tilt and Black Friday:
I probably shouldn't comment on that too much only because it's in my best interest and the players' best interest, but I do think there is a pretty decent amount of hope left. I'll just leave it at that and hope that's right.

What does Phil Ivey feel about the situation?
I know that he's a really good guy and I know that he feels really sick about the situation. I said that I thought it was like 90-something percent that Full Tilt would pay out, but obviously in hindsight that was incorrect. I know some people got upset about some things that he said. It's possible that stuff that he said was wrong, but I know that he's definitely a good guy and I believe he is sick about the situation. I don't really want to say much more than that.

Cash games:
I was in Macau a bit. I played a bit in Vegas. There were actually some games in Vegas. Did I play somewhere else? I think I might have. I think I might have gone to London after. I've played a lot of live poker since, obviously, there's no online [poker], but I plan to start that soon.

Any details on these cash games?
There were some pretty big games. I don't talk about cash games much usually, but there were some pretty big games all around.

2012 plans:
I'd like that little thing we talked about to be worked out (Full Tilt Poker back online), and then I'd like to go win all the money [online], that'd be a good combination. I've needed a bit of time off for like the last eight or nine months. I was planning a vacation. I had a mini-vacation planned for last April 15, 16, and 17 [that got interrupted], and then I had another one that I was talking about right after that, but I just never got around to it in the last nine months because I was really stressed for awhile. Then wanted to play a lot of poker for awhile.

Dwan is a very good communicator, but although he talked about so many things, looks like he didn’t wanted to tell everything he knew. Having FT back online would sure the best thing to happen to Dwan, as well as for other players like Ivey. But FT coming back doesn’t mean it would be in the same terms it was working before.

he said so little about a lot but i would also like to see FT back but only after paying back everyone's roll that was frozen on there
whether it'll ever be the same who knows,a lot of people will have lost trust in that site so there would have to be some pretty amazing offers given to tempt people back

not very into telling what he knows- i believe he really knows more, but let's leave this to him. btw i also wait for full tilt to be back in business- i miss those funny avatars, great tournaments, promotions, rakeback, rush poker and frozen millions in my account- damn i want full tilt back Hit PC and i also want to take part in those big games in macau- can someone lend me a fiver Stupid

I feel terrible for the people who have a substantial sum of money in limbo . . . I figured that the deal with Bernard Tapie Group would be finalized by now but since the American players will be paid out by the DOJ that probably adds more intricacy to the entire process. I'm just glad that I was able to make phantom deposits, withdraw that money and keep playing with additional ghost funds . . . if Full Tilt never returns, no big deal for me! Tongue lol

Me too for that matter, i mean 95% of my bankroll on full tilt poker was made playing rush poker, still i have a good news for you, pokerstars will launch their version of rush poker in february Big Smile

So you can play rush on stars..
