High Stakes: Dwan had to borrow money from Ilari Sahamies

Tags: durrrr, full tilt poker, high stakes, Isildur1, tom dwan.
Posted on 13 November 2009 by "T".

The Swedish poker player, "Isildur1" keeps on winning big when he's playing against the American high stakes pro, Tom "durrrr" Dwan. It seems like "Isildur1"is very comfortable to play against one of the best high stakes players. When both of them were playing heads-up on Wednesday night and the Finnish poker pro Ilari Sahamies took a seat at their table, "Isildur1" instantly wrote in the chat that he wanted to play heads-up against Tom Dwan.

Sahamies left the table and the game could continue. After a while, however, Dwan ran out of money and had to ask Sahamies for $500,000. Sahamies gave him the money so he could continue playing, but the Swede kept on winning. When both of them decided to call it a day, "Isildur1" had won another $600,000 from Tom Dwan.

-4.48mill for the year -5.70mill loss in 14 days.
Durrrr is in a big hole, and has been for some while, this is not his first loan, as I said in anouther poast a while back he took a loan and was playing big games behind doors HS on FT look normall copmpared to stake he was playing, and he was losing.
Durrrr is broke. belive or not, but its true.....
If He is lucky McSnakey might loanl him some free chips.

hehe isildur is just so hot and durrr dont know how to do. Hard situation : really hard to understand how they can play so much and i m asking myself how much Dwan have still in his bankroll... borrow is bad
 pziko198615/11/2009 01:56:13 GMT
lol Durrrr shouldnt borrow money, but move to lower limits (if he really is broke).. but if he loses that kind of money against 1 player, he is just a retard..
 kenz0bet15/11/2009 10:33:07 GMT
i like Ilari Sahamies
 Lurk3r15/11/2009 11:43:35 GMT
Hahaha asif dwan is getting pounded like this..

Hopefully he can work this guy out and bust him Tongue
 LaBaiz15/11/2009 15:18:17 GMT
durrrr is a great player, but seems to me he is not used to the playstyle of isildur1, maybe better plays next time from him.
 Connie8015/11/2009 17:54:26 GMT
is never good to play poker when you have to ask some one for money.
i hope durrr's luck will change.

This doesnt suprise, the guys bankroll cant be infinite, & after the huge downswing he had im not suprised he's had to borrow Dollar
 Bizla16/11/2009 01:41:01 GMT
Hr could probs ask FT if no one else lends him it.
 Pjot16/11/2009 09:10:39 GMT
Maybe Dwan will turn up here for a free bankroll? Would be nice to have him active in the forum, and such, open the safe and maybe win the mobdraw, and then he's right up there again! Big Smile

HMM... I personally think that everyone overrates isildur1 a little, he is a good player, no doubt about that, BUT.... he comes from nowhere, that means no one knew a shit about his playstyle and he was much more motivated at the beginning, than PA & durrrr etc., to crush the high stakes tables at FTP, since hes a newcomer and thats the reason why he had such a great start.
Look at him now, since yesterday it is getting a little harder for him, he lost a little, then won, but most of the time he is breakeven or "little winnings" (at least compared to the days before).

My prediction is that he'll lose a couple of millions the next few days, maybe 2 or 3. He wont be able to keep his upswing, PA and durrrr do have a read on him now (even I'm getting to understand his game, hes massively aggressive player and he does a lot of semi-bluffs. his playstyle is the very same as iveys playstyle, they are both hardcore maniacs. thats why hes trying to avoid ivey as much as possible. ) and they'll do all to take their pride back, I'm 100% sure. It will be some sort of "martonas-effect"... Tongue
Lets see what happens, I might be wrong, though.. Smile

If that Isildur guy is half way smart, he takes most of the money out of his account and plays smaller stakes. Or completly on another site.

Yeah, I would so, SO, bank a few million $ and be happy! How much does one need? Why risk it all, if it in the end turns out that one was just lucky for a time?

If it is skill, he can start from a few 100 000 and do it again. If it is not, he should get the f*ck out of there.

Well, they are humans, like all of us and we ALL want more and more.... its very hard to stop, when big money is involved.
But yea, your both right, he should save a big part of his money and make a good life with it. Smile

I thought of the same thing after I had written my post. It's damn easy to say you should quit while your a head, but a lot harder to actually do.

I guess my quitting while I'm + probably (among a lot of other things), prevents me from reaching these hights.

Maybe he can start playing highstakes play money headsup, lol
 shokaku19/11/2009 09:10:01 GMT
Looks like Ziigmund will need the money back soon. Down over a million to Isildur at the moment. 1000/500 PLO HU is a bankroll killer.
 Dirika25/11/2009 18:21:17 GMT
could some1 borrow 500k for me too, so i could go beat those pros in their own fields like isildur? -.-

You are from Finland, so ask Antonius or Sahamies. Cool
 Ronsaki06/12/2009 20:48:16 GMT
I dont get it how you can for example lose 1M vs someone in a heads up and continue to play. I mean where is the limit if not the millions :S

The limit is: "ups, no more money in my account to reload"
