One of the most formidable and successful online cash game players is Di Dang, perhaps better known by his Full Tilt Poker handle, 'Urindanger'. Di's handle conveys a concise, accurate warning to all who compete against him at the virtual felt, as even the best Full Tilt Pros have been known to lose massive pots to the notorious 'Urindanger'. Known for his solid game play, Di Dang regularly competes at the highest stakes available against Team Full Tilt members such as Phil Ivey
, Gus Hansen
, and Tom 'durrrr' Dwan.
Di 'Urindanger' Dang and his brother, Hac 'trex313' Dang, were born and raised in Virginia. They acquired an interest in playing poker after Chris Moneymaker won the 2003 WSOP Main Event. When the Dang brothers made their initial venture into the online poker
world, they were fiercely competitive with eachother. Every time one of them would surpass the other in skill and rank, the other would spend countless hours striving to take the lead. Eventually, Di and Hac realized that working together would be far more lucrative than an ongoing rivalry. Consolidating their bankrolls, the duo became a high stakes
force to be reckoned with.
Despite a bumpy start to 2007, 'Urindanger' finished the year with a $1.28 million profit, mostly playing No Limit Hold'em. Even greater revenues resulted the following year after another rough beginning, ultimately earning Di Dang $3.673 million for 2008. The following year, Dang practically broke even with an increase of only $45k for 2009, losing at Mixed HA and No Limit Hold'em almost as much as he won at Pot Limit Omaha. Between January 1, 2007 and March 3, 2010, Di Dang topped $6 million in online poker winnings.
Unaccustomed to live tournament poker, Di 'Urindanger' Dang jokingly admitted once in a video interview that he doesn't even know how to shuffle chips, and - in a separate interview - that his hands shake profusely when he moves in his chips for a bluff. However, Di enjoys entering the annual WSOP Main Event each year, even though he has yet to cash.
