Tom Dwan Finally arrives at 2012 WSOP

by Jeremy

While many of the world’s top poker pros have been in Las Vegas for the 2012 WSOP, Tom Dwan was noticeably absent from the action. Instead, he’s been playing in the huge cash games at Macau’s Poker King Club. Apparently blinds had reached HKD $30,000/$60,000 (USD $3850/$7700) at one point, which made for some big-time action.

However, it looks like Dwan has finally arrived at the 2012 WSOP since he tweeted, “Back in vegas! Been 6months, sick life.” After being out of the US for six months, it’s nice to see that another one of poker’s biggest stars will be taking the WSOP felt.

The reason why Dwan decided to make the trip back no doubt has to do with him playing in the Big One for One Drop. This historic $1 million buy-in tournament will feature many of the game’s richest players, which definitely includes Dwan.

What will be interesting to see is if the young grinder plays any 2012 WSOP events besides just the Big One for One Drop. In recent years, Dwan has been somewhat active on the tournament tables since he’s racked up seven WSOP cashes in the last two years. However, with 45 events already concluded, there’s not a whole lot of tournaments left for him to enter.

All in all, the chances of Dwan finally winning his first WSOP gold bracelet seem pretty slim right now. Of course, it’s hard to place a high value on WSOP bracelets when you’re making millions of dollars every year playing high stakes cash games. That said, you can’t blame Dwan for treating the 2012 WSOP as somewhat of an afterthought.
