Tom “durrrr” Dwan seems to be making up for lost time by annihilating the competition on Full Tilt Poker.

The young online poker pro originally from New Jersey put in countless hours at the tables this week as he played over 7,070 hands and earned $969,145.

Dwan's victims included Gus Hansen, Niki Jedlicka and Patrik Antonius.

The sheer volume Dwan is able to generate in a week continues to leave his opponents in the dust. Cole South was the nearest high-stakes player in terms of hands played but he had only 3,434.

For the year Dwan is now up an astounding $4.8 million.

Meanwhile Phil Ivey continues to be red hot online with another $931k in his bankroll after a busy week.

Ivey didn't shy away from anyone, taking on Dwan, South, NEKOTYAN, Jani Vilmunen, Dan "Jungleman12" Cates, Observer84 and others while recording over 3,000 hands.

The action was spread over a variety of games including $300/$600 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha, $2,000/$4,000 Limit Hold'em and even $500/$1,000 Cap No-Limit Hold'em.

To put things in perspective, Ivey only won $352,319 over the entire six-week long WSOP. Ivey is now up $3.2 million in online poker alone this year.

Also winning hundreds of thousands this week were Cole South (+$343,742), Dan "Jungleman12" Cates (+$285,628) and Jared "harrington25" Bleznick (+$204,446).

Meanwhile NEKOTYAN had the dubious honor of being the hardest hit player this week.

NEKOTYAN, who is rumored to be Russian pro Vladimir Schemelev, lost $1.04 million or approximately everything he won by placing second in this summer's WSOP $50k Player's Championship.

Gus Hansen was also a big loser, racking up $484,456 in damage. Hansen now finds himself $794,667 in the hole in 2010.
