Tony Dunst knew he wanted to be a poker player even before he could legally enter a casino. His dream became a reality and the Milwaukee, Wisconsin-native has put together a solid poker resume with $2.9 million in live tournament earnings and another $1.9 million online. He won his WSOP bracelet in 2016 and even has a WPT title from 2013.

These days, Dunst considers himself to be more of a broadcast personality than a professional poker player.

Highlights from this CardPlayer.com episode include taking over for a poker legend, why Phil Hellmuth is the way he is, being a sandwich artist and selling shoes, being banned from Australia, loneliness in Shanghai, being backed by a 17-year-old and much much more.
