Tom Dwan committed to making Full Tilt Poker Payouts

by Jeremy

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything about Tom Dwan and the $1 million that he pledged to defrauded players following Black Friday. In fact, we haven’t really heard anything from him since halfway through last year, when he still seemed intent of paying players back if it was deemed that Full Tilt would never recover.

Recently, the subject of Dwan repaying online poker players for lost FTP deposits was revisited during an interview with PokerPlayer. When asked about whether he’s still serious about paying players, Dwan told the interviewer, “It’s not up in the air that I’m going to do it. I obviously don’t want a situation where I’ve given some money to some random entity and then can’t get it back. If it (Full Tilt) goes bust I’ll make sure I pay.”

He also didn’t seem to regret offering to pay jaded Full Tilt Poker players as Dwan stated, “I think it’s the right thing to do. I don’t think it’s necessarily right for everyone at Tilt to do that, but I think it’s right for just about everyone involved to give what they can.”

As for whether Tom Dwan thinks we’ll ever see the same level of high stakes online poker that was witnessed at FTP, he said, “I think in the short- and medium-term, yes. But long-term I don’t think it’s done. I don’t think there’ll be too many $500k games online in the next year or two, because the whole economy has changed a lot. I would expect them in three or four years from now.”

From an overall perspective, it’s nice to see that Dwan still plans to give players $1 million of his own money if FTP does truly fail. Also, you can read the whole interview here.
