Tom “durrrr” Dwan has been lighting up the profit charts on Full Tilt Poker this month.

Dwan has already rattled off over 20,000 hands in the high-stakes games in May and is still going strong. 

The aggressive pro went into full beast mode this weekend and picked up $793,616, according to highstakesdb.com.

Formerly known as a No-Limit specialist, Dwan has been particularly effective in the big FLO8 games that have been running and most of his profit this weekend came exclusively from the format.

Although Dwan came down to earth a bit yesterday, losing close to $500k, he’s still showing a massive profit of over $600k on the year.

Interestingly Dwan has also put together a few victories against archrival Dan “jungleman12” Cates in the durrrr Challenge this year, albeit small ones.

This weekend Dwan and Cates recommenced the challenge for a short session. Dwan only won about $30k but he’s actually won every match since they re-started the challenge in 2013.

Railbirds have been desperate for a huge durrrr Challenge session and while that hasn’t transpired yet this year Dwan has steadily grinded $270,000 from Cates, which is significant considering he was facing a $1.5 million deficit at the start of the year.

A massive session could be imminent considering Dwan is feeling some confidence from other big wins and jungleman12 has been chomping at the bit for some action.
