Tom "Durrrr" Dwan is a virtual legend in the world of online poker despite his young age.  That success hasn't necessarily transferred beyond the virtual tables however, that is until now.

Event 11 of the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP), Dwan sits as the chip leader after two full days of play.

PokerKing.com reports that Dwan stands to win "millions" in prop side bets in addition to the $614,248 event prize.

The Edison, New Jersey native has won prize money in live poker tournaments and has appeared on NBC's National Heads-Up Poker Championship, the fourth season of Poker After Dark, the third and fourth seasons of Full Tilt Poker's Million Dollar Cash Game, and the fifth and sixth seasons of GSN's High Stakes Poker. He attended Boston University as an engineering major before dropping out to pursue poker full-time.

Dwan is remarkably mentioned among the biggest losers from time to time on the Internet poker scene, though he has an uncanny knack to pull himself out of deep holes.

Heading into Sunday night, these were the top 5 chip leaders:

1. Tom Dwan, 1,068,000

2. Marvin Rettenmaier, 953,000

3. Scott Hamilton, 947,000

4. Christopher Giddings, 842,000

5. Harsukhpaul Sangha, 837,000
