Dwan, Ivey and Antonius Face Off

Phil Ivey
Despite losing $91k this weekend, Phil Ivey remains in second place for online poker profit in 2010.

Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius all put in weekend sessions on Full Tilt, including a short Six-Max match between all three Full Tilt pros last night.

Coming into the weekend with a Friday night loss of $110,384, Dwan hoped to turn around his recent slide but was unable to find his footing.

He only played 46 hands of poker on Saturday before logging off with just $9k in profit. After making another $9k from 35 hands of $50/$100 Sunday morning, Dwan sat for his first real session of the weekend by joining O Fortuna PLS and MisoRucky at $1,000/$2,000 Heads-Up Fixed-Limit Hold'em.

Dwan sat for a total of 2,421 hands and lost $182,374 at the game, the majority of which went to O Fortuna PLS.

$500/$1,000 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha would be Dwan's next stop, where he would play a combination of Ivey and Gus Hansen heads-up, making $129k from the two Full Tilt Pros.

Unfortunately, while he was making money at the Cap game Dwan dropped exactly $40k at just 11 hands of $500/$1,000 PLO to Hansen, keeping himself stuck for nearly $200k on the weekend.

Excluding just eight hands of $500/$1,000 PLO where Dwan made $10k, Dwan's last session of the weekend took place at the $300/$600 PLO Six-Max game with Antonius and Ivey.

Thanks to losing the largest pot at the table, Dwan dropped another $167,101 in the game, bringing his total losses for the weekend to over $347k.

Ivey, who's online play has been somewhat sparse so far this year, started his weekend with a $212k loss playing $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO on Friday night. Much like Dwan, Ivey played very few hands on Saturday, adding an additional $22k to his losses.

But after making over $114, from the $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO game with Dwan and Hansen, Ivey finished his weekend at the Six-Max game, where he made $28k from just 25 hands.

In total he logged out down $91,056.

Antonius put in the lightest weekend of the three Full Tilt pros, playing just 92 hands from Friday night until early Sunday evening.

His first substantial session came at the Six-Max game, where he beat Dwan and Ivey out of $140k. Unfortunately, Antonius lost back more than half of that profit immediately after, dumping $74k back to Ivey in just 17 hands of $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO.

In total, Antonius finished the weekend up $67,187.
