Tom “durrrr” Dwan is never far from our headlines, whether he’s betting millions on a World Series of Poker bracelet chase, cleaning up on the various poker TV shows, battling the world’s best in the durrrr challenge or just experiencing major swings. He leads a pretty exciting life. This time around we’ve learned that the young pro had a very successful October indeed, amassing nearly one million dollars in profit!

Tom “durrrr” Dwan has been taking the poker world by storm over the past few years, when he rose through the ranks of online poker and took his place among the best at Full Tilt. Since then we’ve seen him on a whole host of poker television shows and at all the highest stakes tables around, mixing it up with the best in the world. Don’t forget his durrrr challenge, in which he lays 3:1 odds that he can best any player in the world bar Phil Galfond heads up online is the stuff of legends, and the internet superstar is well liked by almost everyone in the poker world.

Money, which the majority of us could never hope to see in a lifetime, comes and goes from the pockets of Tom Dwan like nickels and dimes, but there are still some swings that have to be hurting him. A few weeks back I was writing about how he managed the impressive feat of dropping one million in dollars in just seven days, mostly playing $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha against cadillac1944. This is the sort of pain that nobody’s immune to, but it still doesn’t seem to have kept him away from the tables.

It’s a good thing that it didn’t keep him away, in fact, as he has managed to bounce back rather spectacularly in October, completely erasing his earlier loss and ending the month up nearly a cool million; $991,000 to be precise. This very impressive figure puts him squarely at the top of the October leaderboards, but is still not enough to pull him back into the first place for the year, the position currently being held by his durrrr challenge rival Daniel “jungleman12” Cates.

Pretty much everybody loves durrrr, and while a lot of the appeal is in his degeneracy and the swings as his bankroll bounces up, then down, then up again, it is nice to see him doing so well, and we wish him all the best for the coming future.
