durrrr takes second-biggest pot in FTP history

Tom Dwan
Cuchi-cuchi: At one point sitting with almost $1 million over six tables, Dwan battled back from an early deficit to finish up $150k.

Not much else to say about yesterday's epic marathon Pot-Limit Omaha session at Full Tilt Poker with all of the biggest PLO players online except wow.

The biggest wow was Tom "durrrr" Dwan hitting a ten-high straight against Markus Golser to scoop a massive $428k pot - unofficially the second-biggest pot at Full Tilt ever.

With the session including David Benyamine, Gus Hansen, Golser, Di "Urindanger" Dang, ICallSoWhat and Brian Hastings, among others, the action was head-turning and players seemingly took turns scooping $100k-$300k pots.

The biggest loser was likely Golser, who came out $473,000 lighter by the end of the session according to highstakesdb.com.

The bulk of that loss was undoubtedly in the massive pot against durrrr, as detailed in the hand history below from the PL.com MarketPulse section - by far and away the biggest pot won online this year.
