It has been a very long time since Tom "durrrr" Dwan gave an interview. But at Aussie Millions, which is being played at the Crown Casino right now, he talked about, for example, Black Friday, the cash games in Macau and his plans for 2012.
Another session, as a part of the durrrr challenge, between Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Daniel "Jungleman12" Cates was played the other day at Full Tilt. The session (15) lasted for about 6 hours and they manage to play 2900 hands, which means that more than 17,000 of 50,000 hands have been played.
Anyhow, it was Daniel Cates, the biggest winner online last year, who dominated this session and took $318,000 from Tom Dwan. This means that Daniel Cates increased his lead to $819,213.
Phil Ivey had been away from the high stakes scene for a while before he made his comeback last week. Straight away he showed everyone that he still knows how to play online poker with high stakes as he stood victorious in the most sessions he played last week. Anyhow, Phil ended up winning $390,556 last week. Not a bad comeback, ha?
Other players that did well last week were Tom "durrr" Dwan ($2,058,450), Patrik Antonius ($903,838) and "theAsMAN103" ($525,760). Tom Dwan is running extremely good at the moment and it doesn't look like anyone stand a chance against him right now. 2010 just seems to be the year when he will be the biggest winner.
Ever thought of becoming a vegetarian? If no, what if you got $1 million dollars and only had to stick to it for one year? Now it start sounding interesting ha? Well, if you're a good friend of Tom "durrrr" Dwan and have a lot of money, then you might get a crazy prop bet like this one!
In the latest episode of High Stakes Poker, Tom Dwan offered his High Stakes buddy Phil Ivey $1 million dollars if he stops eating meat and fish for a whole year. At first, Phil Ivey wanted $2 million dollars for doing it, but since he had thought about becoming a vegetarian for some time, he decided to accept the challenge.
"I will do it for $1 million dollars. I have thought about becoming a vegetarian for a while now, so this prop bet will make it extra interesting and challenging." said Phil Ivey in an interview with the host of High Stakes Poker, Kara Scott.
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.
Last week was a great week for some high stakes players from Finland. However, the most successful of those were Patrik Antonius who won over a million dollars, and his fellow countryman, Ilari Sahamies, who won close to half a million dollars. Most of the money Antonius won came from the American pro Tom "durrr" Dwan. Tom "durrr" Dwan came to be the biggest loser last week with around $900,000 lost. But as we all know, that is not an amount that Tom Dwan will cry so much over.
Another poker player that lost a lot of money last week was "Martonas", or the "unknown Swede" as many people call him. It seems like "Martonas" has given up playing on the highest stakes at Full Tilt poker. Because lately he can be found on the lower stakes at Full Tilt. Probably he has realized that he can't afford the enormous swings, or just think its easier making money on the lower stakes?
The unknown Swede, "martonas", hasn't been around for very long, but he's already a feared player at the highest stakes. He has won around $1,000,000 since he started playing with the alias "martonas" at Full Tilt poker. Most of the money he has won has come from Tom "durrrr" Dwan. Yesterday these two played against each other once again, and "durrrr" finally got his revenge since their last heads-up session.
Yesterday there was some crazy action going on at Full Tilt's high stakes tables. "durrrr" and "martonas" played heads-up for almost 12 hours straight. The swings were sick, but also very entertaining for those who watched. The pots in this heads-up match many times landed on $400,000 and more. At one point, "martonas", won over 1 million dollars in just 20 minutes from "durrrr". But even though "martonas" won so much money in such a short time, it was "durrrr" who dominated. "durrrr" was up between 2-3 millions against "martonas" for a while. "durrrr", decided that he had enough of poker after playing almost 24 hours straight. Probably he had a very good sleep after this long session since he had won $1,300,000. "martonas" in another hand had no plans on stop playing. He played some great poker against Phil Ivey, Lars Luzak, and Patrik Antonius. Thanks to this, he ended the day when he was "only" $859,000 minus. Even though he lost a lot, he managed to win back over $2 million after that he and "durrrr" ended their session. Quite an impressive achievement!?
