No Truth In Big Poker Win Rumour

Dwan says he was actually losing in Macau…

Reports earlier this week that American online and live tournament poker professional Tom Dwan had won $25 million in a four-handed game in Macau (see previous InfoPowa report) have been denied.

Taking to Twitter late Friday as the rumour attracted coverage throughout the internet, Dwan tweeted:

"At the time of this bogus macau story 36hrs ago i was losing on my macau trip, and definitely hadnt won 25 million in a session."

It appears that the story was sparked by a so far unidentified individual who claimed to have witnessed Dwan first dropping $7 million and then recouping it in a rematch against two Asian professional players and an un-named billionaire, playing four-handed at the StarWorld Casino in Macau.
