The next day he was out quickly in 20th place.
It seems Baverman just didn’t know what to do with the money when he had it.
Flash forward to this past week, Baverman, who has racked up more than $50,000 in tournament winnings since 2003 including a cash at last year’s WSOP main event, still doesn’t know what to do with the money when he has it, like paying child support to 6 of his 8 children. Apparently the 51-year-old hasn’t paid a dime over the past year or so and now owes $31,221 for six of his eight children. He finally got the bad beat he deserved though when he was arrested in the middle of a hand at the Gold Strike Casino in Tunica, Miss. and now faces up to three years in jail for failing to pay child support.
Baverman was able to shirk his duties thanks to cash winnings that didn’t show up anywhere . . . except all over the Internet. Yes, Google his name or just click here to see how he’s been doing. Kathy Hayes, Baverman’s former wife and mother of their children, had been keeping track of her deadbeat ex over the Internet for the past 2 years, watching his winnings pile up month after month as her bills piled up at home. With the help of tournament reports published online at Hendon Mob, Poker Player and elsewhere, a grand jury finally indicted the donkey and authorities tracked him down in Tunica.
What’s next for Deadbeat Dayne’s poker career? Not sure, but we’re guessing if he plays his cards right he may be able to win enough smokes in the prison ring games to pay off anyone wanting to toss his salad.
