durrrr Takes $568k Beating
Tom “durrrr” Dwan had a disastrous weekend losing $568k in the high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker.
The majority of Dwan's losses came against unidentified online grinder URnotINdanger2.
Dwan hit the online tables in the late afternoon yesterday and didn't leave until it was well past midnight.
In approximately seven hours of play Dwan recorded over 3,000 hands in $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha, $100/$200 No-Limit Hold'em, $50/$100 NLHE and $200/$400 Cap PLO.
The biggest session came in $200/$400 PLO where Dwan played 762 hands against URnotINdanger2, racking up $316,131 in losses.
Dwan would also lose $36,219 in $200/$400 No-Limit Hold'em bringing his total losses against URnotINdanger2 up to $352,350.
URnotINdanger2, whose nickname is an obvious riff on Di Dang's online name Urindanger, first appeared last fall and has since put together one of the swingiest graphs in poker.
URnotINdanger2 has gone on $1 million upswings only to lose it all back in short periods of time.
Later in the evening Dwan also lost even more playing $100/$200 No-Limit Hold'em against THENUTHUNTER and then a Six-Max $200/$400 Cap PLO game against Gus Hansen, David Benefield and Ingenious89.
When the dust had settled Dwan had lost a total of $568k. Dwan can rest easy, however, knowing he's still the biggest winner in 2010 with $4.3 million.
Dwan's closest competitors, Phil Ivey ($3.2 million) and Dan "Jungleman12" Cates ($2.5 million) were not active this weekend.
