Dwan continues his hot streak to win over $400,000.

Thursday, 5 August 2010

The high stakes games are undergoing a familiar pattern – they are being durrrr-molished as Tom “durrrr” Dwan continues the winning streak that saw him shoot $2,000,000 ahead in the durrrr challenge against Patrik Antonius.

Shortly after netting almost half a million dollars in less than 200 hands, Dwan took to the nosebleed tables for a grind of over 5,000 hands. It was in over 2,000 hands of the $100/$200 PLO game that he really found his wings, winning a quarter-million dollars from Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer and around $180,000 from Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies.

Dwan is, of course, the best online poker player in the world today but the largest pot he won is an example of how well he has been running over his million dollar tear this week. In a six-bet pot (yes, they have those) the rest of the money went in versus URnotINdanger2 on a Ts-3s-5s board. Palmer had AA25 for a gutshot and overpair while durrrr flipped up KJ98 with the king-high flush.

Running it twice did not get URnotINdanger2 out of danger; he lost out on both halves of a $172,000 pot. Watch this action live at Full Tilt Poker.
