Tom “durrrr” Dwan has now broken the seven-figure mark for 2010 earnings, doing most of it on Saturday night after a huge session left him $1,338,000 to the good.
He played mostly Pot-Limit Omaha and took on all comers including ill-begotten Patrik Antonius, who won four of the day’s largest pots but broke even overall.Amazingly, one hand saw all three players involved put in over 300BBs each before the flop. Patrik Antonius raised to $2,400 on the button at a $300/$600/$100 PLO table and durrrr 3-bet to $8,100 from the small blind. PixKim, who lost almost $1m on Saturday, 4-bet to $27,000 and Antonius called.Dwan wasn’t done, though – he raised to $108,000 and PixKim moved in for over $350,000. This covered both Team Full Tilt pros and they put their stacks in the middle too, creating a $423,400 pot. Both Dwan and PixKim showed aces, though Dwan’s Ah-Ac-Th-Td had a little more equity than PixKim’s As-Kh-Ad-4d. Antonius still had about 30% with his KK44 double-suited but the board ran blank until a Ts river made durrrr a full house.Dwan now has 2010 earnings in excess of $1.5m after losing a little last week. Cole South still boasts $2.4m net profit for 2010 despite losing seven figures last week and Gus Hansen joins the elite few over the $2m mark.Isildur1 is now also one of the top ten biggest earners of 2010 after a $500,000 score the same night that Dwan killed the games. He has made a shade under $800,000 in the three months since 2009.Watch the crazy action at Full Tilt Poker.
