Durrrr Stars in Huge High Stakes Game at Full Tilt

by Poker Team

The action over at Full Tilt Poker has never been better. Though PokerStars is the world’s largest online poker site, few would argue the fact that Full Tilt is home to the biggest games out there. That statement has never been more evident than last night when there were nine separate $200-$400 Pot Limit Omaha cash game tables going at the same time.

The star of the show was Tom “Durrrr” Dwan, who is seemingly in the news everywhere these days as he was a participant at all nine tables simultaneously. When the dust had settled, he had racked up over $840,000 in profit. The first game to get underway featured an all-star lineup of Dwan, Gus Hansen, Urindanger, Ziigmund, Brian Townsend, OMGClayAiken, howitfeelslike and KObyTAPOUT. Over the course of the next several hours, LarsLuzak, John Juanda, Chau Giang and David Benyamine stepped in as well. This was a rare treat to the over 1,000 players who were railbirding the nosebleed action watching these players exchange one monster pot after another.

Notably, the largest pot of the session, and one of the top ten largest online pots of the year went to Hansen who scooped a $459,846 pot in the early morning hours. He was the beneficiary of hitting a nut flush when Dwan had shoved all-in on the turn holding 2 pair and a lower flush draw. Despite that massive score, Hansen was only a slight winner for the marathon session as Dwan was the biggest winner when he scooped up a number of pots over a quarter million dollars.

It is reported that David Benyamine, who had been running well of late, was among the biggest losers on the day.

It would seem that Dwan is well on his way toward giving himself a bigger bankroll for his upcoming live challenge in London in September.
