Dwan Shows His Softer Side

Dwan Shows His Softer Side

Tuesday, 8 July 2014

The WSOP Main Event is always filled with famous faces from all walks of life, but for one railbird the most impressive person in the room earlier today was Tom 'durrrr' Dwan.

Despite sharing a tournament with the likes of NBA star Paul Pierce and former Liverpool defender John Arne Riise, Dwan became the focal point for one awestruck fan during the closing stages of Day 1C.

Although he's usually known for his elusiveness and unwillingness to talk (let alone smile), Dwan was forced to let his guard down after a female fan asked if she could "hug him".

The American pro raised a smile before putting his arms around the girl and posing for a picture.

The rarity of the situation wasn't lost on Jonathan Aguiar who burst into a fit of laughter before explaining to Dwan's fans that this was the first time he's seen the high stakes star "smile on one of these photos".

With the fans happy and Dwan back in his seat the table continued to revel in the moment, as did Dwan who seemed to be a more relaxed version of himself than we've seen in previous years.
