How much money did durrrr have in prop bets

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jun 10, 2010 Posted in Poker Player News, WSOP News | No Comments »

After news started trickling in about the magnitude of money Tom Dwan –better known as durrrr—stood to gain should he win a World Series of Poker bracelet in 2010 the numbers are absolutely astounding.

His second place finish in the $1,500 No Limit Holdem event will probably go down as the biggest prize differential between first and second place; in fact the $600k+ he would have booked for the win wouldn’t have even touched what he would owe in taxes on the prop bets.

Apparently Dwan was laying 3.25 to 1 odds on himself, and the rumors have put the total action at around $5 million. So, should Dwan win a bracelet he stands to earn somewhere in the ballpark of $15 million! The two biggest bettors are rumored to be Phil Ivey and Eli Elezra, with a $3 million and $1 million bet respectively –though this is simply rumor.

As it is, Dwan is on the hook for $5 million, and as each event finishes, and his chances at a bracelet get smaller and smaller, he must be starting to feel the heat from the huge wager.

Players who know the exact numbers are being mum on the exact figures –obviously they don’t want to broadcast any gambling wagers, and therefore winnings– with Daniel Negreanu saying only that, most people would be set for life.
