Dwan Gets Burned by Griffin

Ashton Griffin
theASHMAN103 confirmed.

Ashton “theASHMAN103” Griffin exacted an ounce of revenge on Tom Dwan last night, making back $153,000 of his previous night’s losses.

Known for going on massive bankroll swings, typically due to playing the toughest players in the game at the highest stakes offered, Griffin has spent the last two nights pitting himself against Dwan at $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha.

Tuesday night's session saw Griffin lose $284k in just 32 hands before continuing on to lose another $127k to Ziigmund at the same stakes.

Last night, however, Griffin was able to find his footing against the most recent addition to Team Full Tilt, taking Dwan for $153k in a 193-hand session.

The largest pot between the two young professionals weighed in at exactly $202,000 with Griffin's over-pair holding against Dwan's flush draw.

The next largest pot came in at $142k with Griffin also winning the pot after flopping a seven-high straight.

Griffin ended his night up $182,530, bringing him up to around $900k profit on the year so far.

Dwan, who only played 19 hands outside of his session with Griffin, finished his night down $144,150.
