Last year it was Phil Ivey, who during the WSOP was conspicuous by his absence. And this year it is Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan, who previously preferred games in Macau rather than grinding the tournaments full time in the desert state.
It is, however, changed a short time ago, which means that I suppose all the major nosebleeders are gathered in Las Vegas.
"Back in Vegas. It is 6 months ago, sick life," Durrrr writes short and well on his twitter.
The american has been following the big cash games around the world for the last year, so I guess besides the great One Drop tournament there might come some good stories from Bobby's or Ivey's Room, now the whole gang is together.
