Record pot in Full Tilt Poker Million Dollar Cash Game

Record pot in Full Tilt Poker Million Dollar Cash Game

Monday, 1 February 2010

The latest incarnation of the Full Tilt Poker Million Dollar Cash Game has shattered the Tom Dwan vs. Barry Greenstein record pot on Full Tilt Poker as Phil Ivey and durrrr contested a $1,108,500 behemoth when both players turned straights.

Dwan, holding 7h-6h on the button, built a $33,500 pre-flop pot with Phil Ivey who defended his small blind with Ac-2d. They were playing three-handed alongside fellow Team Full Tilt member Patrik Antonius with millions on the table.

The Jc-3d-5c gave both players gutshot straight draws and Ivey bet $35,000 with a wheel draw and the backdoor nut flush draw. Dwan called with his higher straight draw and the 4h turn saw the action explode as both players made straights.

Ivey bet $90,000 into the $119,500 pot and durrrr raised to $232,500 leaving himself just over a quarter of a million dollars behind. Ivey moved in, putting in seven figures of chips into the pot as durrr snap-called with the nuts.

Ivey’s face was ever expressionless even as he knew he was playing a $1.1m pot and drawing totally dead. The irrelevant river card saw Dwan break his own record for winning the largest televised cash game pot.

Not only do Full Tilt provide televised cash action featuring seven-figure pots, but they routinely produce huge hands online in their $500/$1,000 games.
