About Dewey Tomko
Dewey Tomko’s Net Worth is estimated at $15 million. Born in 1946 in Glasport, Pennsylvania, he made most of his fortune from poker.
Duane started off as a Kindergarten teacher. However, he had long been into poker, having made profit from the game at 16 years old. At night, after his day job at school, he used to play, and realized that he made more from poker than his full time job. He invested some of his money in business, and quit the job to concentrate more on poker.
He first made his mark in the field, scooping his winnings from the WSOP bracelet in 1979, in the No Limit Hold’em event, in which he won $48,000 against Duane Hammrich. Since then, he has participated in every WSOP event, and holds the current longest active streak, his lifetime winnings exceeding $7 million. He is married, with three children.
