There is virtually no public information regarding Tom’supbringing and schooling, but he began playing poker when he was 17 years old. He used the money he got for his birthday to play online poker at “Paradise Poker”. At first he lost some money, but as soon as he focused more he started winning. Soon Tom began playing cash games and won several of them, and so his net worth began growing as he became more experienced. That is why Tom even decided to drop out of college in order to focus more on his career as a professional poker player. Of course, not everything was perfect,and to give an idea of his ups and downs, according to experts, Dwan won over $312,00 in 2007 on Full Tilt Poker and $5.41 million in 2008. However, Dwan then admitted to losing over $2 million in a four-month period, but recovered it within a year. In early 2009, Dwan lost more than $3.5 million, but again recovered in just six months. However, in late 2009, Tom lost around approximately $2 million to Phil Ivey and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies, and $5 million to Viktor Blom.
In a 2008 World Series of Poker (WSOP) event held in the US, Dwan reached the final table in the $10,000 World Championship Mixed Event finishing in 8th place, earning $54,144, and shortly after again finished in 8th, this time in the $5,000 No Limit 2-7 Draw with Rebuys event, earning $45,110.

As of August 2017, his total live tournament winnings are officially known to exceed $2,900,000.
