Tom Dwan Promoting Paul Phua's New Training Site

Tom Dwan was once one of the most high-profile poker players on the planet, but since parting ways with Full Tilt at the end of 2013 he has become somewhat of an international man of mystery. In July 2014, Dwan briefly hit the headlines again after coming to the defense of Malaysian businessman Paul Phua who had been accused of running an illegal sports betting operation in Las Vegas, charges that were eventually dropped, but since then there have been no messages on Dwan’s Twitter account, or even an appearance at the 2016 World Series of Poker.
This month, however, Dwan made a rare media appearance alongside Paul Phua in order to promote a new poker training site run by his friend called While a regular at some of the highest stakes poker cash games, Paul Phua still describes himself as an amateur player, albeit by his own admission the “best amateur player in the world”. Likewise, Tom Dwan has said Phua “is always one of the best poker players in almost any poker game he sits down in.”
Now, Phua is offering to share the benefit of his experience via his new, professional looking site, which already has links to all the main social media outlets set up, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, Google Plus, and YouTube. At the moment, the site is free to access, but presumably a little while down the road it will switch to being a pay-per-view model.
To date, however, fans have to make do with a two-part video released featuring Phua and Dwan which lasted around five minutes in which they discussed some poker strategy, as well as the different types of players that they regularly encounter at the tables.
One question that hasn’t been answered, though, is where Dwan has been for the last few years, with many believing that he has been living out in Macau, host to some of the world’s highest stake games. Now that Dwan has become a poster boy for Phua’s new site, we may get to find out a bit more about his movements as new material is released.
