Tony Dunst – The Battleship Bounty

Tony Dunst, a high-stakes pro and one of the most unique personalities in the poker industry, joined the World Poker Tour as host of the WPT Raw Deal segment for Season IX. Tony beat out hundreds of other contestants in a nationwide search to capture the coveted slot and spent seven seasons strategically analyzing some of the most pivotal hands from World Poker Tour events. When Mike Sexton announced his retirement from the WPT commentary booth, it was only natural for Tony to be promoted into the role starting with Season XVI.

Tony has always been an avid player of World Poker Tour events. In Season XII, he was able to etch his name on the venerable WPT Champions Cup™, winning WPT Caribbean and $145,000. Later that season he nearly became a two-time champion, but ultimately fell in third in the WPT World Championship, earning $452,729.

In 2016, he added yet another marquee title to his poker résumé when he won a WSOP gold bracelet in a $1,000 No-Limit Texas Hold’em event, and defeated a field of 2,452 entries to earn $339,254 in that tournament. Featured as a frequent bounty in the hugely popular WPT Family Live Stream Bounty Series – Tony's no stranger to great poker tournament action on the ClubWPT virtual felt.

Total Value Of The Tony Dunst WPT Battleship
Bounty Prize Pool Is $10,000 And Includes:

  • 1st – 4th place finishers + player who busts Tony Dunst: One (1) $2,000 Tony Dunst WPT Battleship Bounty Las Vegas VIP Travel Package, including a $1,000 cash travel stipend, 4 nights luxury accommodation at the Wynn Las Vegas, entry to play in The Tony Dunst WPT Battleship Bounty heads-up match, exclusive invite to a WPT VIP party with World Poker Tour talent, and official ClubWPT swag.
