Tom “durrrr” Dwan $7.1 Million In Profit For 2010April 22, 2010 8:02 am
After coming off a $7 million downswing towards the end of 2009 and limiting his losses for the year to $4.5 million, 2010 is proving to be an altogether more pleasant affair for poker pro Tom “durrrr” Dwan.
The 23 year-old originally from Edison, New Jersey has been crushing the Full Tilt Poker high stakes action all year long and is currently enjoying a $9.6 million upswing, which has taken his profits for the year so far to an impressive $7.1 Million.
Tom Dwan seems to be running over his opponents at the virtual poker tables these days and last night was no exception as he managed to relieve Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies of a massive $1.2 million of the Finn’s hard earned cash.
Yesterday’s session started with Dwan battling it out against Swedish pro Odonkor1, who has been enjoying a bit of a heater himself recently after winning $855K over the past three days. Dwan put paid to his run, though, and over four hours managed to win $225,048 from Odonkor1 at $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em.
After a break lasting five hours, Dwan returned to take $30k from Phil Ivey over 11 hands of $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha, before it was Sahamies turn to reap the whirlwind. Sahamies aggression level is legendary, even in high stakes circles, and sparks were firing all night long as the two pros attempted to gain advantage over the other.
There were at least a dozen pots worth over $200k throughout the session, the biggest of which was a whopping $557,994. Dwan took down all three of the top pots and by the night’s end walked away with $1.2 million of the Finnish pro’s money.
As his rampage on Full Tilt Poker continues unabated, Tom Dwan is way out in front as the top earner on the site this year. Up until recently Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies was threatening as a distant third but with his latest trouncing, there is clear daylight between Dwan and the rest of the field once more.
