SNG Players Who Made It Big - Intro + Part 1

A new series of blog posts starting today. While many SNG players are relatively new to poker and grinding out a bankroll... some who started in Sit n Goes have made it to the very top of the game. The idea is that once every week or two I will take a player who started at the SNG tables and turn their success into a little motivation for SNG Planet readers!

When I first started playing SNGs there were the likes of Assassinato, Spacegravy and RainKahn at the tables... and these guys are just the tip of the iceberg.

Today I'll kick off with one of the biggest names in the online (and now live) poker world.

Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan started off with a $50 bankroll, grinding $5 SNGs on Paradise Poker. Tom did not follow bankroll management of course and actually found himself down to his very last buy-in... of course he won that game and the rest of his build up and successess are there for all to see. Interesting thought here... what if Dwan had bubbled, he might have forgotten about poker all together and taken up other hobbies?

Anyway, for those readers currently grinding away at the lower-end SNGs, keep at it and - who knows - a few years down the line it might be you throwing around million dollar challenges!

GL at the tables, Mark
