How old is Tom Dwan? Dwan was born in July 1986, making him 36 years old. He was born in New Jersey and is considered one of the top ‘millennial’ poker players who mastered their craft online. How did Dwan get his start in poker? He received a $50 birthday present, made a deposit at Paradise Poker — and the rest is history. He dropped out of Boston University to play poker professionally and began like most modern stars of the game by playing online poker in the mid-2000s at Sit & Go tables.

Dwan got his start mostly in online poker, and played a lot of sit-and-go events early in his career. Since, he’s been known for his high roller status and winning tournaments like the National Heads Up Poker Championship and many Poker After Dark events.

Dwan excels on No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha tables. He isn’t restricted to playing solely in the US either. Dwan has played in tournaments in Europe and Asia and is a familiar face in Macau.

Playing under the name ‘durrrr’, Dwan won millions of dollars at online poker events but also suffered big losses. He began playing at live tables around this time and entered his first World Series of Poker tournament in 2008, where he came eighth in the $10,000 8-Game Mix Championship and picked up $67,680.

Two years later he finished second in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em WSOP competition and walked away with $381,885. But his earnings at world poker events are small compared to his private challenges.

Dwan isn’t afraid to challenge other players to big-cash games and also competes in Full Tilt Poker tournaments. He makes regular appearances on the TV show High Stakes Poker and in one episode in spring 2021 walked away with over $300,000.

For now, Macau seems to be where Dwan plays most of his poker. The tables usually hold $1,000/$2,000 blinds and there are millions of dollars at stake. Whether he ever returns to WSOP events or even online poker remains to be seen.
