Does he have a future, do you think he can evolve as top players learn his game?
He is a great player. This has been a hard year for him and that could effect his confidence, but when I played with him on HSP this season he played fantastic. He doesn't seem to understand limit poker yet, and seems quite juicy, but I'm sure he'll get better at it eventually once he spends some time on it.

Is he interesting away from the table?Is his laugh as annoying in real life?
I don't hang out with him very often at all, but I think he's interesting. I don't find his laugh annoying at all.

I don't know if we're allowed to ask more than one question but w.e.What kind of hourly wage would Durrr have to pay you to get you to play 4 tables of $500/$1000 HUNL?

Is there too much variance in the games that he plays that will eventually leave him busto?
That depends on his bankroll size and his willingness to play smaller if need be. I don't see him being totally broke, no.

What older players or combination of players (like your age and above) does his play/style remind you of?
For me Stu Ungar, but Doyle says that Jack Strauss played just like Durrr, same style.

His bet sizing and post flop play. He makes a lot of ambitious plays before the flop, but that's only because he can get away with it by making excellent reads after the flop.

Great topic Daniel..this could really generate some more activity to the forums. REPHRASED: Do you see a lot of interest in backing/investing in Dwan's game now?
Fortune favors the brave.

Are their any games that he plays bad? This is assuming you have played mixed games with him at Bellagio.
