Durrrr pushing $2m in Hold'em profit for Oct.

Tom Dwan
durrrr: So hot right now.

Proving why there's no one more feared at the high-stakes tables, Tom "durrrr" Dwan's was up to his usual last night on Full Tilt Poker's $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em tables.

When he finally packed it in for the session, durrrrr had racked up another $568,319 in Hold'em profit, pushing his Hold'em earnings to $1,945,560 for October so far.

No end in sight for his earning potential either, as the two marquee tables at Full Tilt (GusHeaven and RailHeaven) have become a proving ground for young unknowns and rich dabblers lately.

Among them the lesser-known - and lesser-feared - players stepping up for a shot at the big time have been Maxime "BeepBeepImaJeep" Villemure, "lady marmelade" (reputedly Guy Laliberté), Bryn "OneUponaStar" Kenney, and unknown players named "Nizot Skizared" and "jcreachbaum1."

As expected, you can find most of the lesser-knowns high atop the money losers list with lady marmalade (-$436,394), lolzcapaneo (-$201,987) and OneUponaStar (-$113,493) all down big numbers today. See the full list for the last week, month and year here.
