Back in October of 2012, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Viktor "isildur1" Blom joined Gus Hansen to become the new team ambassadors to Full Tilt Poker and became known as "The Professionals." That was then. Today the news broke in a report from from PokerListings, that both Full Tilt Poker and Dwan have opted not to renew Dwan's expiring contract.
A thread on the TwoPlusTwo poker forum brought the news to light when questions were raised about Dwan's disappearance from the FTP Professionals web site that lists Hansen and Blom as the only members now.
Adding confirmation that Dwan was no longer part of the team came from an FTP spokesperson, "To have one of the most respected names in poker on our team has been a great pleasure. We will continue to watch Tom at the tables and wish him every success in the future."
Many believe that Dwan is more interested in the cash games in Macau at the present time than playing online poker as to his reasons for stepping out of the picture as one of The Professionals.
