Event #11: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Tom "durrrr" Dwan is Eliminated in 2nd Place ($381,885)


Hand #148:

Tom Dwan has the button.

Dwan shoves his remaining 1,645,000 in the middle and Simon Watt instantly calls.

Dwan: {Q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Watt: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Tom Dwan and the dealer are the only people sitting in the ESPN final table area as the flop falls {8-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{A-Spades}.

The crowd explodes into a chorus of sounds, some calling for cards, others celebrating red/black side bets. Dwan remains seated, silent.

The {A-Diamonds} turns and Dwan finally stands, contempt with his fate. He needs one of three queens or the final ace in the deck. The room falls silent as the dealer wraps the table...

The very second the {k-Hearts} hits the river Dwan shakes Watt's hand and heads directly for the exit.

"I can pick up my stuff tomorrow, right?" he asks a tournament director as he scurries off.

The director nods, "yes," and Dwan is out the door.

It is an amazing accomplishment to final table one of these large, $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em events at the World Series of Poker, let alone get heads up. Bobby's Room is safe for now, but congratulations are in order for Tom Dwan who takes home $381,885.
