It’s been years since Tom “durrrr” Dwan recorded a truly memorable run on Full Tilt Poker but that all changed over the last few days.

Dwan went on an 11,114-hand rampage on Full Tilt over the weekend that saw him eventually finish with $1.9 in profit, according to highstakesdb.com. 

Durrrr spread his victories over a variety of games including $300/$600 PLO against Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene and 2-7 Triple Draw against Sauce1234, Rui Cao, patpatpanda, Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond and others.

Tollerene, one of durrrr’s biggest victims, made a small comeback on Monday when he beat Dwan for $246k.

Regardless of the setback, it was a remarkable three days for Dwan.

Even before Black Friday, Dwan was on a terrible run on Full Tilt Poker that saw him down $2.4 million, including some huge losses to Dan "jungleman12" Cates in the durrrr Challenge.

Since play was suspended on Full Tilt Dwan was content to play the high-stakes live games in Macau, although he was rumored to be several players on PokerStars.

It appeared Dwan’s online game was a bit rusty when Full Tilt returned in November as he quickly accumulated $987,000 in losses.

Dwan’s success wasn’t the only blast from the past on Full Tilt Poker this week.

Ilari Sahamies finally restored his iconic “Ziigmund” account and returned to the high-stakes games on the site.

Ziigmund stuck primarily to the $10/$20 and $25/$50 PLO games, small by his standards, but it’s difficult to imagine he’ll stay away from the nosebleeds for long.

Sahamies has traditionally performed better on PokerStars, where he's up over $1.6 million all-time, and is better known on Full Tilt Poker for insane swings.
