Tom Dwan Signs With Poker Royalty for Worldwide Poker Marketing Representation

Poker Royalty, the industry’s premier poker representation agency, today announced that poker professional Tom “Durrrr” Dwan has selected Poker Royalty for worldwide management and marketing representation across all major platforms, including media, sponsorship, licensing, commercial endorsements and appearances.

Only 23 years old, Dwan is one of the most successful players in the history of online poker. He is one the first online poker professionals to also achieve success in the high-stakes “big game” at Bellagio in Las Vegas, competing against high-stakes professionals Phil Ivey, Barry Greenstein, Sammy Farha, David Benyamine, Jennifer Harman and the legendary Doyle Brunson.

In making the announcement, Brian Balsbaugh, Founder & CEO, Poker Royalty, said, “I’m thrilled to represent Tom, who I consider one of the most intelligent and interesting people I’ve ever met. He would be successful at whatever he decided to do, I think the poker industry is lucky to have him. Expect to see Tom more active in the business side of poker in the coming months and years.”

In addition to his cash game prowess, Dwan has over 1.1 million in career tournament winnings, with final table appearances in the Aussie Millions, the World Poker Tour (WPT), and the World Series of Poker (WSOP). He is a regular on several made-for-tv poker programs such as Poker after Dark and High Stakes Poker.

Upon signing with Poker Royalty, Dwan said, “Brian and I have been working together unofficially for a while now and he guided me through the negotiations with Full Tilt on my sponsorship deal. He added a ton of value there, so I’m excited to make it official with Poker Royalty by signing a management contract. I’m interested in several poker-related business opportunities and Brian and his team are perfectly situated to help me analyze those opportunities.”
