Tom Dwan is desperate to see a swift and peaceful resolution of the Egypt crisis

Tom Dwan is one of the richest young men in the world, with a self-made fortune of nearly $5m at the age of just 24.

But online poker whizz durrrr is more than just a pretty face.

The Full Tilt pro is a prolific poker Tweeter and his messages seem to have become gradually more thoughtful as his bankroll has increased.

And this week, as he jetted around the world to fulfill sponsorship duties,  he stopped the usual chit-chat about hotels, restaurants and buy-ins to urge his 27,000 followers to turn on the news.

It seems events in Cairo, where anti government protestors are trying to force tyrannical President Hosni Mubarak from power, has durrrr gripped.

"Anyone who hasn't been following what's going on in egypt should readup some," Twooted a clearly infatuated Dwan.

"Pretty crazy," he added. "Hopefully it ends well."

Quite.
