Ivey joins Tom “durrrr” Dwan on the August online leaderboard

Thursday, 5 August 2010

It’s appropriate that, at a time when skill vs luck in poker is being debated in official government institutions across the pond, two of the best players in the world have had a roaring start to August – between them, Phil Ivey and Tom “durrrr” Dwan have made more than $1,500,000 between them in the month of August. It’s only been five days!

Ivey has banked around $565,000 in the past working week (can you say that about your 9-5?), the majority of which came from a session against Luukie21 that saw Ivey net more than half a million dollars.

Dwan, however, is topping the seven figure milestone already for this month. He has been playing almost non-stop and really putting in some incredible volume – he is pushing 20,000 hands played for the past week.

The month started poorly for Luukie21, who dropped the wedge mentioned to Ivey, and Gus Hansen who has still been unable to find his feet in the online games at Full Tilt Poker.
