It has been kind of quite around Tom "durrrr" Dwan and his high stakes games lately. But now he hits the headlines once again as he has played what probably is the biggest pot in the history of televised poker in Full Tilt's Million Dollar Challenge.
The pot landed on $1,100,000 dollars, and it was against one of the best poker players in the world at the moment - Phil Ivey. This is how the $1,1 million dollar hand between Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey was played out.
Dwan raised pre-flop, Ivey answered Dwan's raise with a re-raise, which Dwan called.
Flop: Q-3-5 (2 of them clubs)
Ivey bet $40,000 and Dwan called.
Ivey bets and Dwan raised to $240,000. Ivey goes all-in, Dwan calls straight away.
Ivey shows A-2 for a straight (A-2-3-4-5 - no flush draw)
Dwan shows 6-7 for the nut straight (3-4-5-6-7)
Ivey is drawing dead. A happy Tom Dwan just have to wait for the river card to hit the table before $1,1 million dollars is moved to his side of the table.
In January next year people in the UK will be able to see this amazing hand on television.
