Tom “durrrr” Dwan $5.6 Million In Profit For 2010

Right from the very beginning of the year, Tom Dwan got off to the best possible start at Full Tilt’s high stakes cash tables and has since played 142,000 hands and managed to book an impressive $5.6 million profit for 2010 so far.
Towards the end of 2009, Dwan must have felt a little bruised after coming off a $7 million downswing but has been making back the ground ever since and is currently on a $8.1 million upswing.
Dwan’s rampage on Full Tilt Poker continues unabated and last week alone he played around 11,500 hands on the site, turning a $1.6 million profit in the process.
However, poker is a game of swings, especially at the high stakes level, and where there are winners so there are losers. So whereas Tom Dwan is currently the top earner on the site for the year, last year’s champion Patrik Antonius is this year’s biggest loser and is currently stuck over $2.5 million after having turned a $9 million profit in 2009.
Also, CardRunners instructor Cole South was 2010’s biggest winner in February, heading the leaderboard with over $3.5m in profit but has since given up nearly all of his winnings playing mostly $300/$600 and $500/$1,000 PLO and is now just about breaking even.
One other player who has seen brighter days at the virtual felts is Brian Townsend down $2.2 million in 2010, while Dwan’s nearest competitors who are in profit are “NEKOTYAN” ($1.98M), Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies ($1.94M) and Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn ($1.79M).
As the year progresses you can be sure there will be many twists and turns to come so remember to stay tuned for regular updates.
