When you first played him did you think he had 'it'?Has he gotten a little bit, somewhat better, or a lot better since you first played him?

What's his biggest weakness? Got any tells to share?
He's a bit sloppy pre-flop sometimes IMO...

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?
WOW! I would never do it because I suck bad at multi-tabling, but for the sake of the question, I'd ask for $15k an hour and probably take $10k.

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?
It depends who he plays. Against Isuldur he's been losing pretty steadily so I wouldn't want to go that route, but in typical NL or PLO games, sure, he's a good bet.

Who would win in a boxing match. Durrrr or Phil Hellmuth.
I think Jennifer Harman would have a shot in a boxing match against Hellmuth, lol. I'd bet on Durrr.

Are their any games that he plays bad? This is assuming you have played mixed games with him at Bellagio.
I thought he was pretty bad at most all of the limit games.

By the time I played with him for the first time I already knew he was legit. Not sure if he's better now, but I would assume so, but marginally so from what I can tell. He was already really good.

I assume online but can't say for sure since I haven't really played with him online.

In a roundabout way this reminds me of this gold from Harman in a pro chat on FTP.

I love the game of poker for the competition, the psychology, the never-ending quest to improve, the advanced and sometimes minute complexities not everyone sees when they play, and the enjoyment of succeeding after giving all your energy to reach a goal that may at first seem unattainable but that you find a way to make it possible.

How much of his success do you feel was reliant on opponents not willing to play back at him without strong hands?Now that he is routinely playing against players who will do so, do you think he will have to adjust somewhat?
