Tom Dwan Wins $1.5M To Go Top Of Full Tilt's 2010 Money BoardOctober 5, 2010 8:56 am
After a testing few days in which he lost $1,092,096 at Full Tilt’s virtual felts, Tom “durrrr” Dwan has established himself once more at the top of the site’s leader board after winning $1.5 million Sunday night to go $4,411,072 up for the year.
Contributing the lion’s share to Dwan’s incredible day was Finnish pro Illari “Ziigmund” Sahamies who lost around $1.2M to Dwan playing $500/$1000 PLO.
Despite playing a 800 hand session against each other, the match remained even over 500 hands before Dwan pulled away in the last 300 hands to take down the impressive amount.
The biggest pot of the night was worth $416K and was won by Dwan after Ziigmund’s flopped top two pair but lost to Dwan’s straight on the turn.
Dwan also got involved in around 2.500 hands of other games including NLHE and H.O.R.S.E. against various opponents to further his profits on the day.
Notably, Dwan and Dan “jungleman12” Cates582 then revisited their durrrr Challenge II and played a further 582 hands over an hour. JungleMan12 took down the biggest pot of the session worth $103,000 after he was dealt 9c-7d to Dwan’s 2h-2s.
Durrrr raised to $1200 and called jungleman12’s re-raise to $4000. With the flop falling 5s-6h-4s durrrr called his opponent’s $4400 bet then a further $11400 on the turn when a 6c fell.
The action 3h river card then gave both players a straight and jungleman12 then check called Dwan’s all-in bet to scoop the $103,000 pot.
Nevertheless, at the end of their session Dwan managed to even the score and eventually emerged slightly ahead at the end of play with a minimal $1,429 profit. The duo have now played 7,402 of their agreed 50K hands over 5 sessions with Jungleman12 a $689,599 winner to date.
Tom Dwan, however, is currently ahead by $2,059,719 in the first of his durrrr Challenges against Patrik Antonius with still another 10,564 hands left to play. Dwan is also $5,675,073 up at Full Tilt Poker since joining the site in 2007.
