Tom “durrrr” Dwan's Profits Dive As He Hits $2.7 Million Downswing

Having seen his profits peak at $7.3 million for the year, Tom “durrrr” Dwan has now hit a downswing which has resulted in him losing $2.7 million over the last couple of weeks.
With a current profit of $4.6 million, Dwan is still Full Tilt Poker’s biggest winner for the year so far and his hyper-aggressive style is always sure to produce some spectacular swings.
Saturday was clear demonstration of one of those swings as Dwan proceeded to lose $1,000,000 on the site, after playing first against Phil Ivey and then jungleman12.
Tom “durrrr” Dwan started the day playing $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha against Ivey, and just 430 hands later the game had broken up with Ivey walking away with a $246,538 profit.
Next, Dwan would get involved in a marathon ten hour session across eight $200/$400 NLHE tables against jungleman12. The game started well enough with the Team Full Tilt pro winning around $500,000 from jungleman12, before polarities switched and Dwan ended up giving back his money plus another $613,923 on top over 7,874 hands played.
The biggest pot on the night was worth $281,753, with Dwan paying off jungleman12’s nut straight on the turn and shipping the monster pot his way. The session ended with Dwan confirming how much he had lost and trying to set up another battle.

jungleman12: u2
Down around $860,461 over the two encounters, Dwan would then lose another $200,000 over the next 48 hours to bring his recent losses to around $1,018,000.
Currently at the top of Full Tilt Poker’s cash table winners, Dwan will hope to stem the downswing if he is to maintain his clear $3 million lead over nearest competitors Urindanger, PostflopAction and Phil Ivey.
Considering the relative absence of Phil Ivey from the cash tables this year and having played just 16,095 hands throughout 2010, his $1.7 million profit becomes all the more remarkable.
