The report says the game was four handed, with two Chinese professional players, Tom Dwan and the billionaire. It also says he lost $7m the last time he played the same guys, and that this was a re-match.
Those numbers are American dollars, the games were actually spread in Hong Kong dollars, with the big win coming in a HK$200m.
Bobby’s Room in Las Vegas is no longer the venue for the world’s biggest cash games, the crown has gone to Macau. Dwan now lives there, and Sam Trickett also spends as much time as he can in the former Portuguese colony which reverted to China in December 1999.
Apart from Caesars, the big US casino brands now all have properties in Macau, which is just as well, as profits in Las Vegas and Atlantic City have been hard to come by in the last couple of years.
Durrrr’s fans will be rooting for this story to be true, according to the report, the reason he was in the game was because he’s happy to give the action the Chinese players crave – he certainly knows how to do that.
Here’s a classic piece of Durrrr action where he takes down a $400k pot with 5-3 offsuit.
