Tom “durrrr” Dwan Buoyed After Another Winning Session

Tom “durrrr” Dwan looks like he is getting into his old stride again after turning a nice profit of around $900,000 at Full Tilt last night while even finding time to make progress on his  heads-up challenge’ against Patrik Antonius.
Dwan was seen recently playing at the $25/$50 tables and trying to rebuild his bankroll after having it decimated to the tune of $5.2 million by online runaway train Isildur1. Last night, though, he was back playing at the highest stakes once more, in a session which started with him playing  $200/$400 6-max PLO heads-up against Sahamies and South and winning $448,000.
 
Next, Dwan locked horns with Isildur1 at $300/$600 and $500/$1,000 NLHE, with Dwan taking revenge on his nemesis for around $270,000 before then notching up another $180,000, mostly at the expense of Sahmies.
Dwan was truly back on business form and even decided to turn his attention to Patrik Antonius and the durrrr Challenge in a relatively short and controlled 588 hand session which produced a largest pot of $155,000. In that pot both players had around $100,000 in front of them, with Antonius the aggressor, betting and raising each round except the river, which he check called to Dwan’s $48,000 bet. Dwan had hit his straight on the end and took the pot, although overall, by the time the players called it quits, it was Antonius who was up around $68,000.
The durrrr Challenge is now 56% complete, 27,773 hands have been played with Dwan ahead an impressive $711,556 thus far.
Tom Dwan has hit a massive downswing this year and at one stage was around $7 million in the red. His latest results, however, are starting to show signs of improvement and it looks like Tom may have finally turned the corner as he continues to make good progress clawing back some of his huge losses.
