Tom "Durrr" Dwan No Longer A Full Tilt Pro

Tom "Durrr" Dwan No Longer A Full Tilt ProDespite being a part of the original Team Full Tilt and an integral face of the site since 2009, sponsored player Tom “durrrr” Dwan has departed Full Tilt Poker after his contract as one of “The Professionals,” was not renewed. Following the surprising news, a Full Tilt Poker spokesperson, stated:
“Full Tilt Poker and Tom Dwan have agreed to part ways following the recent expiration of Dwan’s contract. To have one of the most respected names in poker on our team has been a great pleasure. We will continue to watch Tom at the tables and wish him every success in the future.”
After Full Tilt relaunched in late 2012 following sixteen months of being offline, Tom Dwan joined Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Gus Hansen as members of the Professionals. Since then, Hansen and Blom have tirelessly been promoting the site, both at the cash tables or at promotional events and poker tournaments.
However, in 2012 Tom Dwan relocated to Macau to concentrate on playing high stakes games, and has subsequently been conspicuously absent from his promotional duties. Dwan  even turned up four hours late for his heads-up battle between The Professionals and Team PokerStars Pro on the sidelines of the EPT London, whilst online this year he may be $750,625 to the good, but has put in very little volume of play since June. In addition, his durrrr Challenge against Dan “Jungleman12” Cates has been on hold for such a long time that fans have all but given up hope on ever seeing it reach a conclusion.
Following Dwan’s departure, it is likely Full Tilt will now be looking to boost its slim roster of just two Poker Ambassadors. Names currently being speculated upon as possible replacements include Sam Trickett and tournament specialist Chris Moorman, both of whom are presently without sponsors.
