Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan continue to wage war on the Full Tilt high stakes tables this week but with very different results.

After winning nearly $400k on Sunday, disaster struck durrrr last night when he played a prolonged heads-up battle against unidentified online player O Fortuna PLS.

The game was $2,000/$4,000 Limit Hold'em and Dwan sat for three hours, played 585 hands and got absolutely wrecked by O Fortuna PLS.

Although the suckouts aren't quite as sick in Limit Hold'em, it was obvious that O Fortuna PLS did get some help from the cards

In one $20k pot, O Fortuna PLS rivered trip fives with K 5 in the hole. In another pot that exceeded $20k O Fortuna PLS hit a three-outer to make a better two-pair than Dwan.

When the damage had finally been tabulated, Dwan had taken a $242,056 hit and may stay away from the Limit Hold'em for a few days.

It was a very different experience for fellow Team Full Tilt Pro Phil Ivey who played over 1,000 hands in the last 24-hours in a variety of games.

Ivey's best session came against online player deprimiert, who he crushed for $372,847 in 334 hands of $2,000/$4,000 Limit Hold'em.

Ivey also recorded a solid $300/$600 PLO Six-Max session against the likes of Cole South, Vaga_Lion and trex313 where he won $178,537.

It wasn't all good, however, as Ivey lost $129k to Jared "Harrington25" Bleznick at $500/$1,000 PLO and another $60k in $500/$1,000 CAP No-Limit Hold'em to R-Quaresma.

In total Ivey finished up $392,977, which continues the exceptional summer he's been having. If Ivey keeps up this pace he could potentially pass durrrr on the 2010 cash game earnings leaderboard.
