OK, so I have some free time and want to do some fun stuff here in the forum. So here is how this works. In this thread, you guys can ask me anything you want about my thoughts on Tom Dwan. Make your questions short and sweet and I'll reply to them when I can. Try to keep the "chit chat" to a minimum and just focus on ONE simple question at a time and I'll answer it. This week we'll do Tom Dwan, and then you can vote for who you want the feature player to be next week in the poll. Sound fun? Fire away...

Does he have a future, do you think he can evolve as top players learn his game?

In his lifetime? Absolutely. I think now that he's signed with a site he'll try a bit harder in tournaments, plus I just laid him 400k to 200k on a bracelet bet this year, me versus him. If we both win one or more it's a push.

Is there too much variance in the games that he plays that will eventually leave him busto?

No, unfortunately not. I've tried making moves on him but he shows no interest so he must be straight...

That's a really tough question to answer, because he's obviously had a tough year of poker. I'd guesstimate that his peak bankroll in his career was about 8-10 million.

YES it does!!! I find it mind boggling that the kid can play four heads up games online and not time out, but when he plays one live cash game he takes so long on most decisions. In fairness, he does play a lot of hands so he's in a lot of marginal spots, but still, it's a bit too much sometimes.

What older players or combination of players (like your age and above) does his play/style remind you of?
