Tom Dwan is making tidal waves on the poker rumor mill this week. The superstar emerged from a Twitter hiatus with a tweet storm about the CIA and Wikileaks. In a recent video, Doug Polk shared his opinion of the infamous Durrrr Challenge with Dwan and Jungleman, plus the recent rumors that Dwan got involved in a sportsbetting scam for seven figures.


There's no shortage of durrrr rumors in the poker world. Simply sit at a poker table in Vegas for a couple of hours and you'll find someone who has an opinion about on the Durrrr Challenge, or you'll meet someone who has wild theories about what happened to Tom ‘durrrr' Dwan in the wake of Black Friday. One dealer in Vegas even suggested a conspiracy theory that Dwan got in trouble with the Chinese mafia after getting stuck in nosebleed cash games in Macau. Ah that's the price of fame in poker… you're going to be the subject of rumors and speculation at the tables and on online forums.

Tom Dwan. The kids called him durrrr. At one point, Dwan reached the pinnacle of poker. Not too many people can boast they were the best online player in the world. In the mid 20000s, Dwan was a college student by day and a beast at night as he crushed the virtual tables playing under ‘durrrr' where he was widely regarded as best online player in the entire poker universe. Dwan also put his live skills on display in Vegas as one of the younger participants in the Big Game hosted at Bobby's Room at the Bellagio. Dwan took on the likes of Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, and Bobby Baldwin. He was a regular on the TV show High Stakes Poker and became a hero to an upcoming generation of online poker players during the height of the poker boom.

Dwan love side action and made numerous high-profile WSOP bracelet bets and other prop betting action. Dwan got involved in the durrrrr Challenge with Dan ‘jungleman' Cates. The online heads-up cash game marathon on Full Tilt never played out to the finish after numerous start-stops. Once Black Friday hit and Full Tilt imploded in their own scandal, everyone assumed the Challenge was dunzo.

There were whispers last summer that the Challenge would finally finish out. Jungleman claimed that he and Dwan were trying to figure out how to finish it out…but nothing has transpired since then.

“Durrrr has been stiffing junglemam in this Challenge for years,” explained Doug Polk. “This is one of the largest scams in poker history!”

In a recent vlog, Doug Polk wanted to dig deeper into another durrrr conspiracy. Last year, renown sportsbettor Haralabos ‘Haralabob' Voulgaris appeared on the Joe Ingram show and claimed that a “NVG hero” and high-stakes baller owed him seven figures via sportsbetting. Getting stiffed for millions was “the closest thing I've ever been rolled,” claimed Haralabob.

Haralabob claimed he made basketball bets thru this NVG superhero (who in turn made bets through a bookie/bookmaker). Haralabob hasn't been paid since 2012 and he's owed “seven figures.” Haralabob wondered if this NVG hero made the bets or not, or booked them himself. Haralabob got tons of excuses why he hasn't been paid.

Haralabob recently sent a tweet to Tom Dwan asking him how he could get in touch. And of course, the poker knitting circle exploded with speculation. Polk devoted an entire video to the tweet, which he felt implicated Dwan was the “NVG hero” that Haralabob alluded to on the Joe Ingram show.

In case you were wondering, Dwan emerged from a Twitter hibernation with a tweet to a New York Times article about the recent Wikileaks involving the CIA. Dwan then unleashed tweet storm about the CIA and Trump. Check out Dwan's tweets here.
