Cole South Takes Dwan for $251k

Tom Dwan

The struggle continues for Tom “durrrr” Dwan after getting stepped on for $251k by CardRunners pro Cole South Monday night.

Dwan's first session of the day was a brief 21-hand stint at $200/$400 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha where he won $19,682.

After a five hour break, he returned to the tables to play South heads up at $200/$400 PLO. The match lasted 224 hands with the largest pot coming in at $172,184.

But despite losing the seven largest pots of the session, Dwan managed to keep his losses to only $251k.

This single session would be the only cards South would play on the night. Adding the $251k to his totals for the year now brings South back up to over $3.1 million.

A surprise to most, Dwan has struggled to turn any profit for 2010, currently sitting down around $580k on the year.

His inability to turn a profit seems to have little to do with hand volume as Dwan sits just 300 hands shy of 60,000, making him the fourth most active high-stakes player on Full Tilt so far this year.

After his session with South went south, durrrr went on to play 503 hands of $200/$400 Cap-PLO against Gus Hansen, Brian Townsend and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, losing another $155k.

Fortunately, he managed to make $353,195 playing 7-Game, subsidizing the majority of his losses.

Gus Hansen continues to win at the tables posting a $182k win from 7-Game, and another $85k from Cap-PLO to add $268,205 to his roll.

Since his 30-day suspension last year, Brian Townsend has been on a heavy downswing losing another $224k at 7-Game last night to push his losses on the year over $1 million.

Below are the three largest pots between South and Dwan. To see more hands from the night, head to MarketPulse.
