Tom “durrrr’ Dwan, fresh off a summer of huge WSOP bracelet bets, is back to his day job of crushing high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker.

Thanks to large sessions against Patrik Antonius and Rob "Vaga_Lion" Akery, Dwan is officially red hot and has earned $911,148 in the first six days of August.

Dwan can also lay claim to winning the biggest pot in August - an epic $200k PLO hand against Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies.

In the hand Dwan flopped two-pair but Ziigmund put some serious pressure on him by shoving for $73,000 with a single pair. Dwan found the call and after bricks on the turn and river saw the $200k pot shipped his way.

The Team Full Tilt Pro is now up to $3.9 million in 2010 and, thanks to a $2 million lead, it's looking likely he'll win the durrrr Challenge as well and add $500,000 to his bankroll at some point.

Dwan isn't the only player who has had a blisteringly hot August. The always consistent Phil Ivey is right behind Dwan with $569k while Jared "Harrington25" Bleznik is up $353,071.

On the other hand there are a group of players who have been ice cold to start the month of August.

Luukie21, who is rumored to be a well-known Dutch player, has had a downright catastrophic week losing $678,939.

Gus Hansen had a great start to 2010, charging to a $2 million profit, lost $606,287 this week and is now down $55,000 for the year.

Finally Sahamies, who lost that $200k pot to durrrr, is down $590,079 in August and has written on his blog that he's going to skip the rest of the month.
