Tom “durrrr” Dwan already up $1.7m for August

Wednesday, 11 August 2010

Tom “durrrr” Dwan is on another hot streak – online poker world, watch out!

Since August 1 (just ten days ago, mind you) he has won over $1,700,000 at Full Tilt Poker; largely in the Omaha games that have netted him a cool $1.4m including more than a quarter-million dollars against Patrik Antonius in the durrrr challenge.

Speaking of which, next challenger "jungleman12" has won $225,000 in August thus far and a total of $2.5m for the year. Dwan tops the 2010 leaderboard thus far with $4.7m won in 2010 – Phil Ivey is behind him on $2.5m but then there comes "jungleman12" with a little less than that.

Also on the winner’s list in August so far are the King Phils of poker – Ivey and Galfond, who have earned $758k and $566k respectively so far this month.

Thus far in August, the biggest online loser has been Gus Hansen who has lost over $850,000; largely in the PLO games and thus largely now sitting in durrrr’s account.

Watch this action live and wait for durrrr vs. "jungleman12" at Full Tilt Poker.
